Graphic by Art Miller

IT Services will host an all-campus IT workshop on Wednesday, May 24, in the Union Ballroom from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

All IT employees and campus tech collaborators are invited to this half-day workshop about collaboration, goals, and working together to modernize campus technology and mature IT processes.                              

Vice Provost for Academic Affairs Ro DiBrezzo will give the keynote and will share her experiences as a faculty and leader about collaboration in a campus environment.

"Collaboration is not only one of the five values that I prioritize, but also one of the eight guiding priorities for the entire campus," Chris McCoy, chief information officer, said. "We've made great progress over the last two years in developing a sense of team work across campus. It's important we push to the next level of collaboration and be the model for all of campus."

Refreshments and lunch will be provided. Please RSVP by Monday, May 22, at its.uark.edu/events/.
