In support of the University’s mission, the Information Technology Department is committed to providing technology and services that will provide our faculty, staff, and students the tools necessary to help achieve their respective educational and institutional goals.
The Ozarks campus provides network access to students in eight on-campus computer labs. Our computer labs are equipped primarily with Dell® computers running the Windows 7 Professional ® operating system and the Microsoft Office 2010 or 2013 ® suite. Each lab is also outfitted with at least one laser printer. Additionally, eight mobile laptop carts access the campus network wirelessly and are utilized for classroom instruction only. Wired and wireless network access is available in all University Residence Halls. Public wireless internet access is available in all Academic Buildings and the campus mall area.
The IT department is responsible for maintaining the entire campus computing environment. This includes network infrastructure, all networking equipment, and the campus data center. Campus data servers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and are backed up on a daily basis. Although the staff does not work on or maintain personal computers, we are available to assist with any technology-related questions students or staff may have.
WHAT OUR STUDENTS DO
University of the Ozarks President Richard Dunsworth, J.D., has been elected to the board of directors for the Association of Presbyterian Colleges and Universities (APCU).
University of the Ozarks awarded 87 bachelor’s degrees to graduating seniors during its 183rd Commencement ceremony, held May 13, on the campus mall.
One of the core values of University of the Ozarks is “the service of all of creation,” and that driving principle was on full display during a recent mission trip to El Salvador by the student organization Rotaract.
