The Department of Communications and Ag Education, Information Technology Services and the Division of Communications and Marketing have been working since August of 2013 on a plan to integrate the people and resources of the K-State Research and Extension Technology unit with the University’s Information Technology Services. The goal of the integration is to better serve our on- and off-campus faculty and staff while eliminating overlapping services. Through this, we will maintain our off-campus tech support.
Implementation of the plan will begin in June and progress throughout the summer. Staff from the KSRE Technology unit will be moving to join teams within Information Technology Services. The first of these moves begins in June with Vernon Turner serving as manager of the Operations Center. Vernon will be moving to 214 Hale Library and his phone number will remain the same (785-532-3899). Joe Lear will serve as the facilitator of the reorganization and liaison to the College of Agriculture and K-State Research and Extension for Information Technology. Joe will be moving to 116 Foundation and maintain the same phone number (785-532-3962). We are working to make sure that no phone numbers change, but we will have updates as we progress.
As reorganization progresses, we will keep you informed via K-State Today, the KSRE Tuesday letter, and on the Information Technology Services web site (http://www.k-state.edu/its/
). If you have any questions regarding the reorganization, please contact Joe Lear at email@example.com
