Media Services is your campus support team for on campus or online classroom technology.  Please contact us for assistance.


Campus A/V Support

If you are instructing on site this fall, please schedule a training session with a Media Services tech.  There are many new, low touch instruction options in the currently available classrooms.


Our team’s mission is to connect the campus community to available audio + visual technologies.

We achieve this by providing and maintaining A/V equipment for both on-campus and virtual classroom and event environments, arranging one-on-one trainings, assisting with video conferencing, supporting in-person or online events of all sizes, and collaborating with constituents to create opportunities for future learning.
