Academic IT Forum on The University Implications of Personal Ownership of IT Devices set for Feb. 24, 2-3:30 in the University Union Foothill Suite 

The first biannual Information Resources and Technology Academic IT Forum will kick off next week with the hot topic of faculty personal ownership of computing devices and the implications for the University. This forum will take place 2-3:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24, in the University Union Foothill Suite.

The forum will consist of a panel of faculty and academic administrators responding to questions from both a moderator and the audience. The panel consists of faculty members Ray Koegel and Mary Reddick, staff member Mike Wimple, Dean Charles Gossett, Associate Dean Nick Burnett, and Bill Post (former CIO CSU Chico).  The panel will review the many complex aspects of increasing faculty personal ownership of computing devices. Should the University provide software for use on faculty devices? Do personal devices used on campus need to follow the same security rules? Should we be responsible for support of personal devices for University work? These are just a few of the many interesting and controversial questions that will be addressed at our first IT Forum.
