This organization was first formed in 2008 by combining the departments in ITS, the Library, Media Services, and Academic Information Services. In 2010, the organization was reorganized and expanded to include the Center for Learning and Development and the Professional and Continuing Education departments and was renamed Academic and Institutional Resources and Technology (AIRT). In 2011, Bioinformatics was added to the AIRT services to provide support for research activities and collaboration. The Center for Online Education and Center for Interprofessional Practice were added in 2012.
Our mission is to provide exceptional services, information resources, and faculty development in support of the Health Science Center's missions and to significantly impact the quality and success of the University. AIRT reports to the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs/Provost through the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs and Development. Click on the department links below for detailed information.
