Information Technology

The Office of Information Technology provides and supports technology, communication, information, and collaborative services to Ball State faculty, students, and staff in the pursuit of excellence in teaching, learning, and research. Our primary goal is to serve as a catalyst to the campus community using technology in creative, innovative, and immersive directions to advance and support the mission and goals of the university.

We strive to reduce the hassle factor for our end users by unbundling the complex, standardizing processes, seeking a smaller footprint, promoting self-reliance, and avoiding duplication of services.
