Track: Policy Issues & Institutional Strategic Planning

Breakout Session VII
Fri 12:00 pm – 12:55 pm

Abstract
After 15 years of manages services from SCT>SunGard>Ellucian, Raritan Valley Community College embarked on a substantial restructuring of its IT support services with the objective of reducing costs and improving support services.

The initiative was designed to be a “Right Sizing” solution that brought key positions back to the College, a remote Help Desk and also brought about changes in campus culture. This presentation will describe the process that started as a “do more with less” directive that is shaping into a “do better with less” outcome.
