Mission Statement

C&IT provides services and resources that support and enhance WSU's teaching, learning, research and administrative activities. C&IT's primary goal is to provide technology services that enable our students, faculty and staff to be successful at WSU. C&IT strives to provide excellent customer service, respond to the changing needs of the university community, and make it easy and convenient for everyone to use technology at WSU.

C&IT management empowers employees, treats them with respect and encourages innovation and open communication. The division continually seeks out and tries new ideas, and employees are recognized for such efforts. C&IT also ensures that those in management not only have the technical qualifications for their roles, but also have the excellent skills needed for motivating and working with people.

Strategic Plan

Wayne State recently released an updated university-wide strategic plan, Distinctively Wayne State. As a key academic and administrative support unit, C&IT is tightly integrated with the university's strategic directions and has aligned itself with the plan's core values and strategic focus areas.
