Academic Project Support Office

The Academic Project Support Office (APSO) focuses on media production and the technology needs of faculty and academic departments across campus. As the primary conduit between the University’s academic pursuits and the resources of information technology, the APSO collaborates on a wide variety of media-rich projects.

The early phase of all APSO projects involves careful consultation and planning with the academic stakeholders to make sure the right technology is being used to achieve the desired outcome. Then, strategic collaborations are established with IT resources to see the project through to completion. Throughout the entire process, the APSO guides and manages the project to make sure all objectives are met on time and at the highest quality.

Media and technology solutions facilitated by the APSO are as diverse as our campus-wide partners. The process for finding the best solution for a project is very detailed, but projects may include:

  • video or audio production
  • app development
  • mobile and responsive web design
  • touchscreen kiosks and displays
  • digital publications
  • online, collaborative workflows
  • hardward consultation and purchasing
  • software training and advising

As a resource for the University community, not all projects require funding or outside support.

Project costs will be established at the beginning of consultation with the APSO. If you have a project idea, please explore how to submit your project.
