Student IT Forum

The Office of Information Technology hosts a monthly open forum for students to share technology experiences, provide feedback on tech tools and ask questions of UA technology leaders.
Student IT Forum meetings begin with updates on current IT projects, such as the student email migration from Gmail to the Microsoft Office 365 cloud environment. Students are encouraged to ask questions and offer feedback. The second half of the meeting includes a special guest or presentation.

Quotes from Student IT Forum Members
“For me, the Student IT Forum has been about connecting with a diverse group of students and staff who have a common interest in information technology. The forum has taught me a lot about IT as a field in general and given me a new respect for IT professionals. Another enjoyable part of the forum is getting to give a student’s perspective on the current and future state of campus IT.”
“I’ve been involved in the Student IT Forum since freshman year. As a computer science major, I love how I get a closer look into the way technology is employed at UA. I get to voice my input straight to those in charge––from WIFI speeds in residence halls to the transition to Office 365, they want to hear our feedback! Students of all majors should definitely join so they can also share their opinions and learn more about OIT.”
