The Department of Information Technology (IT) oversees the operation and management of information technology resources and provides comprehensive customer-focused technology support services for all members of the New Jersey City University community. As the primary technology resource for the University, IT provides technology leadership in the planning, implementation, and support of Academic and Administrative initiatives. The department is broadly divided into three enterprise service areas: Applications, Systems, and Support. Each enterprise area is comprised of the following units and working groups that serve the University’s technology needs:
New Jersey City University (NJCU) provides information technology resources, equipment, and training that support full and competent use of technology in teaching, learning, administration, and communications. NJCU embraces the effective and responsible use of technology to promote academic achievement, enhance productivity, and nurture personal and professional growth.
The University recognizes that technology plays an integral and pervasive role in all aspects of University life. To address this prevailing thought, an information technology plan was developed in 2008 to provide a framework for technology at the University. Development of the plan began with a review and assessment of the prior plan that was developed in 1998. The exercise revealed that most of the goals and objectives set forth in the prior plan were successfully met and in some cases exceeded. Issues that were not addressed were identified and carried forward into this plan.
The Information Technology Steering Committee (ITSC) provides leadership in technology planning and acts as a collaborative governing and coordinating body for all technology initiatives. The ITSC, which reports directly to the President, sets technology direction and provides overall assessment of the effectiveness of technology across the University. Under the auspices of and at the direction of the ITSC, four technology task forces, with representation for all campus divisions, make recommendations to the ITSC in areas related to: Instructional Technology, Technology Standards and Services, Enterprise Information Systems, and Web Services.
