WSU Information Technology Division
Be responsive to the current and future needs of the changing educational environment
Provide creative solutions to improve learning and increase accessibility
Provide training, information, resources, and tools which protect the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of University Data
Empowering faculty and staff with tools to lead the University forward.
With hundreds of projects presented to the IT Division throughout the year, it is critical to understand the lasting impact the projects have on student success and the best use of the limited financial and human resources available. Using President Wight's inaugural address and other University discussions, we have extrapolated language to focus on how the WSU IT Division can assist the University with critical initiatives. The IT Division has created an acronym of RISE: Respond, Innovate, Secure and Empower in selecting the most impactful projects, processes, and operations.
Mission Statement - Just Cause*
To inspire and educate through impactful technology for the success of all students.
* "A Just Cause is a specific vision of a future state that does not yet exist; a future state so appealing that people are willing to make sacrifices in order to help advance toward that vision." - The Infinite Game, By Simon Sinek
