Information Technology and Tomorrow's University
A president offers her confessions and also advice on leading information technology and on how IT professionals can (and should) be at the core of envisioning and shaping the future of colleges and universities.
We all know that higher education is in a transformational period. I believe that information technology will play a central role in this transformation, offering unimaginable opportunities and demanding unforeseen responses. I thus also believe that IT professionals can and should be at the core of envisioning and shaping the future of our colleges and universities. As someone with more than twenty-one years of experience in the administration of comprehensive regional universities—ten-plus of those years as president—I offer here my confessions and also my advice on leading information technology in higher education during this exciting time of transformational change.
Message from the president of the University
We are delighted to inform you that the UGOC now has a new, state-of-the-art IT management system, which is much more efficient. Any applicant or student already attending the university can now enroll or receive an invitation to renew their registration online with ease, all at the touch of a button. In both cases, all that is required to benefit from the new system is a functioning e-mail address. It becomes increasingly important for everyone to keep their computer file up to date by taking the time to answer any questions correctly and to make sure that they remain in contact with the university at all times. By maintaining this correspondence, the UGOC will be able to respond quickly to your complaints and can make it easier for you to gain an overview of your results and research work.
We must agree to work together because our goal is to help you achieve your dream and to receive excellent training that is perfectly suited to your needs. Success comes much more easily through mutual collaboration and an indescribable solidarity with those responsible for setting us on the right path.
Welcome To UNIVERSITE GOC
Thirty five years in higher education says a lot. Several generations of students from our faculties, departments and schools are working in the labor market and abroad. These students are at the forefront of some of the most ambitious projects and demonstrate remarkable dexterity and ability in the pursuit of their duties. Whether it be the Sciences and Engineering, Law, Economics, Agronomic, Environmental Sciences or another field of discipline, these graduates are well represented and are highly sought after for their contribution to every aspect of development, both nationally and internationally.
The UGOC takes pride in these achievements and the fact that it has helped to produce executives at the highest level of globalized competition by raising the standards of society in a dignified manner and by helping to create role models for the present and future generations.
