Upgrade K-State: Tell US What You Need began as a campus IT needs assessment project initiated in 2007 by university leadership. A key goal was to engage the campus community in identifying major campus information technology needs as we began planning the next generation of user-driver IT services at K-State. More than 300 faculty, staff, students, and affiliates participated in the effort, which resulted in a set of initial recommendations to better align enterprise IT services with campus needs. These recommendations were endorsed in the Fall 2008 by the University Computing Executive Committee and are summarized in the final report of the Campus IT Needs Assessment Working Group.
The role of technology at the University will continue to grow and change and how we use technology will impact our university's future. Although envisioned as a project, the Upgrade K-State initiatives is on-going. Since Fall 2008, the centrally managed IT units (now consolidated as Information Technology Services) have used the Upgrade K-State themes and priorities to guide their efforts to deliver quality IT services. Continuing a dialogue with our campus communities regarding their information and technology needs and our efforts to meet them remains important.
To that end, ITS will provide periodic updates on this website regarding progress toward meeting your needs. And please continue to share you ideas and needs for IT services to Upgrade K-State.
