Computer Support

Welcome to the BCS-IT group. We provide information technology support to approximately 200 faculty and staff and many graduate students from the three biology departments including Biology Central Services. The BCS-IT group consists of two to three students and myself. Our goal is to provide support to make technology a tool and not a hindrance.

Some of the services the BCS-IT group provides are the following:

  • Computer technical support for both Apple and Microsoft products, administrative, research workstations and servers. Networking, printers, and protocols from centralized IT.
  • Server administration featuring services such as active directory, file server, web server, Lab Tutor server (PNB), and local administrative database server.
  • Security programming, maintenance, and installation of locknetics devices.
  • Computer / IT consulting for faculty, staff, and students for all biology departments.
  • Computer Laboratory maintenance and upkeep for six classrooms between multiple departments.
  • Computer related equipment inventory, redistribution, and retirement. For more information about equipment retirement please click here.
  • Creation of Policies for IT related entities to ensure data security, data integrity, and proper technology use.
