Our Projects

The one constant in the field of information technology (IT) is change, with new technologies and methods for delivering services continuously emerging.

The rapid advances in IT represent both an opportunity and a challenge – as organizations must continually adapt to the new technology to improve operational efficiency and most importantly improve the quality and range of services to their customers. It is with this in mind that UB’s IT staff carry out new initiatives each year to expand service offerings, develop new features, and improve existing services. The goal being to provide UB students, staff, and faculty with the latest advances in information technology to allow them to effectively work and compete in today’s knowledge based society.

Here is a partial list of UBIT’s current initiatives, divided into categories aligned with how they engage the campus community:

Information technology is an integral part of the daily teaching, research, and business life of the University. It is also a consumer of energy and a catalyst for promoting the efficient utilization of energy through innovation and environmental stewardship. Programs like iprint@ub and desktop virtualization allow UBIT to conserve energy and reduce waste.
