Information Technology Services

ITS will assist with any computer service you need in your classroom, from web conferencing to full-service video production. If you are a new part-time faculty member, you might want to make an appointment with ITS to have a technician demonstrate the technology in your classroom. Each school or college has an Instructional Technology Analyst who is available to guide you through the ever-changing world of digital technology. Posted in every classroom is information on how to contact ITS if you need immediate assistance. ITS also runs the Faculty Innovation Center in the William H. Hannon Library where you can get help with technology-centered projects like blogs, videos or classroom use of iPads. ITS also staffs the Incubator Classroom, in the Charles Von Der Ahe Building, where you can try out new ideas in a state-of-the-art environment. During the school year, the technology group offers workshops on the latest in classroom technology. View their website.

We encourage you to attend the center's one-day Part-Time Faculty Orientation, which explains academic rules and procedures, communication systems, course development, and the technology available to you. These sessions are offered at the beginning of each semester.

Center for Ignatian Spirituality

We are at the service of part-time faculty members, offering practical and experiential adaptations of Ignatian spirituality that enable you to more fully and satisfactorily integrate your academic and personal lives.
