Linking It All Together

IU’s first students and scholars could not have fully imagined the ways in which technology empowers our modern university 200 years later. Though computers came on the IU scene in the last 60 years, information technology has realized great success and continues to have even greater potential to help Indiana University’s students, faculty, and staff achieve and improve the quality of their research, teaching and learning, and service.

The people behind IT make Indiana University a leader in IT for higher education. As we mark IU’s Bicentennial, UITS is proud of the work we do to make IU a great public, research, and teaching institution.

Hats off to the employees in our seven divisions—Networks, Research Technologies, Enterprise Systems, Learning Technologies, Client Services and Support, Clinical Affairs IT Services, Regional Campuses—and five offices—Information Security, User Experience, Human Resources, Fiscal Office and IT Communications Office—who power IT at IU.

Happy Birthday, IU! Here’s to the next 200 years!
