The meeting was called to order by Dr. Clinton Crawford, Chair, PSC/ MEC who welcomed all in attendance and introduced CIO, Eddy Ruiz who made a presentation regarding the state of IT at Medgar Evers College.

Summary of the Presentation:

  • IT: Instructional Technology/Information Technology at Medgar Evers College will, hopefully, be improved due to the receipt of capital funding. The funding, however, does not cover maintenance.
  • Key Accomplishments and Current Initiatives as of November 24, 2014:
  1. IT/Infrastructure Services – responsible for the implementation of centralized network systems and technology at the College. A Director of Infrastructure Services has been hired.
  2. IT/Classroom Technology Support – responsible for the design, purchase, Installation, and maintenance of classroom technology as well as related support services. The newly formed team has implemented a preventive maintenance program
  3. IT/Academic Computing – responsible for providing the college community with facilities equipped with technological resources: public labs, computer labs for classes only and lounges located throughout the campus. Old printers have been replaced in all 13 computer labs, and the roll-out of CUNYfirst Campus Solutions was supported and assisted.
  4. Information Services: Information System infrastructure consisting of hosted applications, internally developed and data reporting solutions is being built.
  5. IT/Service Desk with a mission to provide a single point of contact for students, faculty and staff to assist them in resolving problems with software, network connectivity issues, hardware issues and problems with college IT operations.
