Campus-Wide Computer Labs Operated by Information Technology

IT ILC 2012/13 Review The goal of the ILC is to provide a physical, flexible space that allows students to access resources (computers, subscription databases, the Web, production software, and statistical packages), conduct research, write papers, create presentations, and produce projects in one seamless environment, reflecting our University’s mission and goals for student learning. ILC has the potential of facilitating active, out of class-inquiry-based learning that is contextual, engaging, and social.  It appeals to our existing students, as well as new, incoming users —the multitasking Net Generation—who have a preference for collaborative and active learning.  Above all, it provides a centralized access point for multiple services (—expert research, writing, and tech assistance is a quantum leap in support for students.

In Spring 2011 ILC launched the Student Genius Corner (SGC) located on the first floor of Pollak Library North.  The SGC provides a number of services to students, including an online reservation system for students to make appointments.  Some of the services provided are: Long-term Laptop Checkout; technical assistance, such as wireless network/printer connection, installing campus related software, etc. for personal laptops and smart phones and Media distribution.

2013-2014 Goals

Information & Learning Commons endeavors to offer additional services that continue to reflect our University’s Strategic Plan that is built on the University's mission and goals for student learning.  These include: continued development of campus partnerships with IT and University Library to improve ILC services, continue gathering statistical data to assess and advance ILC services, continued enhancement to the ILC webpages, continue to provide the latest software versions, improve hardware and add more equipment, research new technology and other academic environments, create and deploy more self-service options for students.
