Continue to expand the value proposition of technology services across the institution through strategic partnerships and collaboration across the university. Support DU’s capacity to engage with the community of Denver, alumni, and beyond.
Through strong communication, engagement, partnership, cooperation, and collaboration, UTS is a part of the successful completion of technology projects and programs that bring success and improved technology platforms. Further, UTS supports nearly all construction and renovation projects, many of which enable the University to thrive in innovative collaborative programs. Collaborative work has deployed software designed to create community and global reach to alumni, corporations, and foundations. The linkages afforded through technology bring DU into a connected world.
Foster Collaborative Engagement
In 2014 and in the years to come, higher education will become increasingly reliant on a “connected landscape” to facilitate access to people, information, systems, and services. This connected landscape must accommodate access to resources anywhere and anytime whether on or off campus. Today’s student, faculty member or staff person needs access to information and data from many different sources and these sources must be “connected” in a purposeful way. UTS provides deep integration among systems housed and administered on campus to facilitate accurate and relevant data. Connected systems connect people.
Facilitating access to accurate information efficiently and effectively provides a tremendous value to the institution. From helping to implement software that helps University Advancement staff connect with and track donors and alumni to supporting planning for a major website redesign led by the Division of Marketing and Communication, the positive impact that UTS brings to DU in turns supports DU’s impact on its global constituents and their views into the University.
Impacting Global Denver
In today’s environment, institutions of higher education must not only offer information and services that support business needs, but also must be able to implement and adopt these services in record time with minimal resources and disruption. We must not be ivory towers, but must be connected and dynamic catalysts for innovation, using communication systems, social media, websites, and many other technologies to listen carefully to the needs of the community and speak clearly to address problems.
