OIT, TELR - Now Office of the Chief Information Officer

Article originally published in a different format

The Office of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) is now the official name that describes the areas previously referred to as: OIT (Office of Information Technology) and TELR (Technology Enhanced Learning & Research).

"The name change simplifies our structure in support of the university’s "Excellence to Eminence, One University" philosophy,” says CIO Kathleen Starkoff. "One organization, with one clear name, serving one university helps our customers understand who we are and what we offer."

The Office of the CIO will continue to operate in its current structure and contacts will remain un-changed. At the same time, the Office of the CIO is changing former logos and wordmark references to reflect and strengthen the CIO brand. Web and e-mail addresses for OIT and TELR will continue to be operational for the foreseeable future, and the web domain, cio.osu.edu, will for now remain unchanged.

The Office of the CIO serves as a catalyst in working with the campus community to leverage technology to advance and support the mission and goals of the university. Office of the CIO services include, among others, Carmen, eLearning, IT Service Desk (8-HELP) and BuckeyeBar, Student Computer Centers, Digital Union, data storage, telephone and cable TV, OSU Wireless, and classroom services.

The CIO administrative office is located in the Thompson Library, 1858 Neil Avenue, Suite 304, phone 614-292-6553. Visit cio.osu.edu/communications/community or contact cio@osu.edu for more information.
