Information Technology Services (ITS) offers limited support for decentralized enrollment management systems within the University (a.k.a. “departmental systems”) that are not part of the student information system (a.k.a. Banner). These systems, primarily managed by administrative offices, facilitate communications, process support, decision making, and online services associated with enrollment management functions such as; admissions, financial aid, orientation, academic advising, student success, athletics, career services, and alumni relations. Whether hosted locally within the University’s data center or in the cloud, ITS primarily provides essential technological infrastructure (e.g., network connectivity), varying levels of integration, basic troubleshooting, and security oversight. Responsibility for more comprehensive support for the management and day-to-day administration of these departmental systems typically resides within an administrative office outside of ITS.
