What We Do: Mission
Information & Technology Services provides technology, a wide range of services, planning, and leadership in support of the university’s core teaching-learning mission and for effective conduct of the university’s business.
How We Do It: Vision & Values
A life of thoughtful inquiry, service, leadership, and care requires the ability to find and use information and to communicate effectively. I&TS is an active partner in the preparation of PLU students for lives of service in an increasingly digital world.
I&TS envisions an information environment at PLU that:
- is easy to access and to navigate
- enables rich communication among all members of the PLU community
- supplies resources and encouragement for innovation
- provides effective information professionals in support of teaching-learning, research, and conducting the university’s business
I&TS core values include the promotion of information literacy and technology awareness, cultivation of critical thinking skills, intellectual freedom, and equity of access to information.
Toward this end, I&TS marshals its material and human resources in ways that cultivate interdependence as an asset while relying heavily on collaboration, trust, and the empowerment of individuals & service teams to respond rapidly to the needs of our constituents.
