UIndy’s wireless access

WiFi has become an important part of our everyday lives, and UIndyIT is committed to bringing the best possible WiFi experience to campus.

Rod is considering a career shift into IT and wanted to determine if IT is the right fit for him. He spent 14 hours over two weeks talking with, observing, and job shadowing various members of UIndy’s IT team. Rod was so appreciative of IT’s willingness to help and the experiences he had. Tim is a job coach at Sycamore Services, an agency that helps people like Rod find employment.
