The Internet Resource Center's primary goal is to serve the computing needs of both the students and faculty within the College of Business.
The Internet Resource Center, IRC, was established to serve both the faculty and the students within the College of Business. The IRC offers three state-of-the-art computer labs dedicated to meet general computing needs of students. These labs also provide the infrastructure to support the faculty's instructional needs.
A number of classes have been regularly scheduled in the labs every semester. Some faculties occasionally reserve the labs to teach their students some special applications or give a computer-based exam throughout a semester. The PCs in the labs are all networked to the Internet and connected to high-speed printers. They are installed with standard software including Web browser, MS Office as well as classroom specific applications.
Currently, all of our labs are supported by the funding from the student technology fee. Therefore, our operation is subject to the agreement between the College of Business and the Office of Technology. We are committed to maintain the labs open for a minimum of 20 hours per week and at least 50% of open hours between 7AM and 4PM Monday through Friday.
With the tech-fee support, the IRC is able to hire a number of students to work as lab assistants. Each semester, we have a group of competent and reliable students working in the labs. Working as a lab assistant provides these students a unique opportunity not only to learn different software and hardware but also to develop practical skills in technical support and customer service.
Technology is constantly changing, so are the needs of students and faculties. The
primary goal of the staff at the IRC is to be as responsive as we can to these evolving
needs. Please, feel free to let us know what we can do to serve you better. We welcome
feedback and comments from you all.
