The IT Department

Computing services at Western University of Health Sciences are overseen by Information Technology (IT), which includes the Business Process/Customer Experience (BPCE), Enterprise Applications & Database (EAD), Information Security, and IT Infrastructure.

The IT Department’s goal is to leverage technology, to solve problems, and increase the efficiency of academic and business processes. We provide consultation to faculty, staff, and students on the best use of existing University technologies. We also recommend the acquisition and integration of new technologies as needed to address academic and business needs.
