This webpage is dedicated to the promotion of the development of faculty, staff, and students in the area of Information Technology.
Below, you will find a brief description of what each department is doing to develop IT skills within the University community. Under each description, a link to that department's training initiative has been provided.
Computing and Network Services (C&NS)
With the understanding that a computer is only as good as the person using it, C&NS offers a range of basic software training courses to try and help increase the efficiency and productivity of all faculty and staff at the University. In coordination with the Office of Human Resources, the C&NS training initiative has a goal to close the communication and computer skills gap that currently exists on campus. Our objective is to make users aware of the options and features available in Microsoft Office, the Windows and Macintosh operating systems, and other software programs and topics as needed by the University community.
Upcoming training classes are announced through the daily University Announcements e-mail, distributed to all faculty and staff. If you have a particular request for a training session for your department or division, please contact C&NS at (203) 254-4000 ext. 4069, or send an e-mail to email@example.com. C&NS will make every reasonable attempt to accommodate departments in their needs for training.
