About University Systems

University Systems

Over the past several years we have witnessed continuous growth in the use of information systems in higher education. These systems permeate every aspect of university life. Research, learning, teaching, and administration all expect and demand technology support. Every member of the campus community, from potential student applicants to tenured faculty to operating staff, is impacted in a multitude of ways. There are continuous changes to these systems and the value we derive from them is only limited by the scope of our imagination.

Vision statement

We will be the very best provider of information systems in the entire Canadian university community.
