Exciting things are always happening in IT at IU. Whether you've launched a new initiative or celebrated an achievement in tech, one of the first things you want to do is share the news with the world.

Let ITCO help.

One-stop news shop

Whether it’s programs, breakthroughs, awards, grants, or events, we work to promote the best in technology at IU. We're also the main point of media contact for the Office of the Vice President for IT, which is the umbrella for UITS and the Pervasive Technology Institute.

Our productions and responsibilities include: 

  • News releases
  • Media appearances
  • External media requests
  • Newsletters
  • IT News web feature/spotlight
  • Social media

Reaching IU's community

We are also responsible for the IT News website and two eNewsletters: the UITS Monitor and IT Connections.

The Monitor (distributed biweekly) covers the latest news in IT for all campuses. It reaches students, faculty, and staff on all university campuses. Topics include:

  • News and events
  • IT support
  • Resources
  • Services
  • Software
  • Viruses
  • Special pricing on computing purchases

IT Connections (distributed monthly) is an internal newsletter. It aims to keep UITS employees (and others in IT at IU) informed about important policies, news, events—and to share the collective vision of our leaders.

To submit a story for either outlet, complete the request form.
