Within the last decade, the expansion and growth of information technology (IT) at Indiana University Northwest has made a significant impact on the lives of students, faculty, staff and community members. Positive outcomes of using the technology range from accessing information and news on a global level, to Distance Education, to performing job functions in a quicker, more efficient manner, to creating web pages that reflect a dynamic learning environment.
Along with Indiana Universityís seven other campuses, Making IT Happen, an information technology awareness campaign, will run from March to December 2002 at IU Northwest. The campus will celebrate its first IT awareness initiative on Wednesday, March 20.
"There are so many ways information technology is available for the campus community, as well as the outside community here at IU Northwest, yet so many individuals donít know what we have to offer," says Don Steward, vice chancellor of technology. "We are planning events throughout the week to raise everyoneís awareness of all the marvelous technological tools we have to offer."
During the Making IT Happen event for Wednesday, March 20, a 90-minute video presentation on security, entitled "Your Vulnerability in Cyberspace," will be shown at 10:00 a.m., noon, and 2:00 p.m. in the Savannah Center Auditorium, and 4:00 p.m. in the Savannah Center Lobby. Also on the agenda is a drawing for one Palm M100 and other prizes will be held after the presentations.
Making IT Happen is co-sponsored by the IU Office of the Vice President for Information Technology and University Information Technology Services. It is designed to increase the awareness of IT resources, services and initiatives that benefit nearly 100,000 students on all IU campuses. The event is free and open to the community.
