About the Office of Information Technology
The Office of Information Technology (OIT) manages the administrative and academic information technology resources for Norfolk State University. OIT provides ubiquitous access to technology over a highly secured wired and wireless CISCO-based network, utilizing a gigabit fiber optic backbone for voice, video, data, and security. A port-per-pillow, computer labs, and wireless access are provided in all the residence halls.
NSU’s state-of-the-art data center hosts a range of technologies including servers, storage area networks, databases, email, a supercomputer and a virtual computing lab (VCL). The data center is managed via an advanced Networking Operations and Security Center. The new Virtualization and Collaboration Center provides an environment conducive for onsite and remote collaborations, visualization, and training in support of a wide variety of opportunities.
OIT is comprised of four major units, Application Services, Client Services, Operations Services and Technical Services. Application Services manages the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system needs for the university to include the servers and the web applications. Client Services assists employees and students with NSU system access, resolves IT related issues and requests concerning on-campus computer systems and equipment. Operations Services provide both administrative and instructional support to faculty and staff in the areas of telecommunications, website, media and smart classrooms in addition to coordinating the physical and environmental spaces for OIT. Technical Services provide security, administration, policy, planning and maintenance of the university’s operational networks and wireless systems infrastructure. OIT also works closely with the Office of Distance Education and Auxiliary Enterprises on Blackboard's course management and Vending/Dining systems.
