WHAT IS THIS?

ITS assists faculty and staff in the acquisition and use of desktop software to support instruction, research and administrative work.  We can provide information and assistance on software already licensed by the university as well as applications not currently in use at RU.  Services include assistance in determining the suitability of particular applications, research into licensing plans and costs (if any), and assistance in acquiring, testing, installing, and using the software.

WHO IS IT FOR?

This service is available to all staff and faculty, as well as adjunct instructors.

STANDARD SOFTWARE
