About Us

The Women and Men of Information Technology are dedicated to providing you exemplary service in keeping with institutional aspirations.  This is simply our individual as well as organizational core value.  We like to say the focus is not about the technology rather it should be on the people we serve.  Our reason for being here is student success.  Please visit our Strategic Plan site to learn more about our Values, Mission and Guiding Principles.

If you are looking for an IT service, don’t worry about knowing the right person to call.  Contact Serve or any IT Team member and they will assist in getting you the desired assistance. 

Thinking of a new concept or a technology of interest, let us partner with you as we love to join in your celebration of success.  Let me also invite you to join one of our advisory committees as your input is valued. 

If I can be of service as your CIO, don’t hesitate to contact me at 478-445-1196 or CIO@gcsu.edu.
