Who represents my technology needs? 

Technology Governance--STACSAC

Who represents my technology needs? 

Great question!  Wheaton College has a Technology Governance structure set up so that all the constituents on campus have representation to speak into technology needs.  For students, this is the Student Technology and Campus Services Advisory Committee (STACSAC).  The members of STACSAC speak into technology needs as well as needs about campus housing, dining, post office, campus store, and so on. 

Each year this committee is chaired by the Executive Vice President of Technology and Campus Services for Student Government.  This year Brett Bauman is the chair of STACSAC.  They meet once a quad throughout the school year and help bring attention to ways that we can better serve our students. 

One of the highlights of STACSAC each year is in the late Spring when we have the “IT and Campus Services Fairy Discussion.”  For this we ask the following question, “If there were an IT and Campus Services Fairy who could give you anything technology-related or campus services-related in the world, regardless of finances, legality, or reasonableness, what would you ask for?”  We have received many interesting ideas this way and have been able to make some changes on campus as a result of these discussions.  We would love to have YOUR input, so feel free to contact us if you have an idea we should add to that discussion.  You can also contact one of the STACSAC members and have him or her mention it for you at the meeting.

If you have a question about technology you are always welcome to contact the AIT Service Desk, but if you would feel more comfortable speaking with a member of STACSAC, we encourage you to reach out to them! They love to receive your input, so they can bring your thoughts and concerns to the table for discussion.  Read more about STACSAC here and find out who else is on the committee. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Academic and Institutional Technology at 630.752.4357 (HELP) or by email at ait.service.desk@wheaton.edu
