Information Technology Day (IT Day) is October 18 – 19.
Gail Baker, Vice President
“What the Heck is Going On Around Here?” is the question that the first annual Information Technology Day at UF will try to answer for faculty, staff, and students. “IT Day” is sponsored by the Office of the Chief Information Officer.
The two-day event will be held in the J. Wayne Reitz Union on the UF campus from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., October 18-19. Admission is free and no registration is necessary. You are welcome to come to all or part of the events.
Complete schedules for the two days can be found at: http://www.cio.ufl.edu/itday.htm The goal of IT Day is to highlight the many changes and expansions in IT service offerings the past year, and to introduce new services that are expected to become available this academic year. The event will feature a combination of speakers from UF and select vendors. Topics to be covered include:
