The Office of Information Technology is committed to managing limited resources, integrating current levels of technology and software, retaining knowledgeable support staff, and preserving the confidentiality, integrity and security of the information in our environment.

Values

These are values that Technology Services collectively and individually strive toward in our interactions with the Whitman community.  This is our internal contract with each other and with those we support.

Make it (even) better
Be open to change. Look for ways to get better, even if there is a risk of temporary inconvenience or failure.

Do the right thing
Do what we say we will do. It's about honesty. Integrity. Dependability. Especially when no one is looking, even if we think no one will ever check.

Tell me about it
Let people know what's going on, whether they ask or not. Listen respectfully. Own up to our mistakes. Seek understanding and input.

Stay hungry
Be curious. Learn whenever we can, from whomever we can. Seek answers as much as we offer them. Find the root cause. Diagnose and fix core problems, not just the symptoms.

Have fun!
Laugh deeply. Enjoy the ride. We don't take ourselves too seriously.
