Assistant Vice President and Chief Information Office for Technology Services, Patricia Kahn, PhD

The mission of the Office of Information Technology Services (ITS), consistent with that of the College, is to advance the use of technology in all aspects of the College's operations, so as to strengthen support services, teaching, and research. ITS is responsible for guiding, assessing, planning, developing and executing state of the art information technologies. ITS has a responsibility to support current technology at CSI while at the same time plan and implement the continuing evolution in technology.

There are 3 open computer labs (Building 1L, Rooms 202 and 212, and Building 3N, Room 217) that are available to students to complete assignments and access the internet and email. They are equipped with the same software as the teaching labs, including programs that support students with disabilities. These rooms are also enhanced with ADA compliant furniture.  All labs are manned by College Assistants, who provide assistance to users. A CSI Computer Login Account is required to logon to all campus computers. Similar to these 4 rooms, computers are also available for public access in various locations throughout the campus.

There are over 200 Multimedia (Smart) Classrooms  installed throughout campus. These rooms have ceiling mounted projectors and wall screens, which allow instructors to display their laptop or other device via a cable bundle. Most Smart Classrooms are equipped with a podium, which house a computer, allowing instructors the flexibility of using the podium PC or a mobile device. A CSI Computer Login Account is required to logon to all podiums. Some classrooms are also equipped with SmartBoards, which are interactive whiteboards.

"CSI unplugged", wireless access is via a valid CSI username and password. The use of ClearPass technology will provide for gatekeeper access for multiple devices and simultaneous logins.
The wireless network can be accessed from any of the academic or administrative buildings.  CSI wireless Access Points are 802.11a/b/g/n capable. The 802.11ac standard is being implemented to provide speed and increase capacity.  All faculty, staff, and students may access the network by using their FLAS and SLAS accounts (same User ID and password used to access email).
