LAS IT is a team of professionals created to support the teaching, research and outreach efforts of those in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences. Our goal is to make the IT part of someone's work as easy to use as possible to ensure our people can focus all their efforts on their work. We hope that our efforts will add a capacity to the College by "rebating" people's time back to them as the IT works for them." Although this will require some time, we have intermediate goals that will act as building blocks for our quest.

The following are our four immediate goals that we are currently working on to finish as soon as possible:
  1. Implement an easier way for departments to update and manage their websites
    • New LAS Website (las.uic.edu)
    • Department Websites moving to new content management system
  2. New computers for all LAS tenure-system faculty (LAS FACT Program)

  3. Provide a secure & stable infrastructure
    • Network storage and virtualized servers - all stored in a safe data center
  4. Utilize all resources to prevent duplication
    • We will use our own resources, those of the campus IT (ACCC), those of the University (AITS) and hosted services wherever there is value for our users
    • Box.com for easy file sharing and storage
