Conference on Higher Education Computing in Kansas
CHECK 2013 hosted by Pittsburg State University
Mark your calendars! Pittsburg State University will host CHECK 2013 on Wednesday and Thursday May 29-30, 2013.
CHECK is sponsored by the Regents Information Technology Council (RITC) and coordinated by the Information Technology and Services Advisory (ITSA) subcommittee. Hosting the event rotates among the member institutions.
Welcome Message from PSU President, Dr. Steve ScottOn behalf of Pittsburg State University, it is my great honor to welcome you to our campus. We are excited to open our doors to you as we host CHECK this year.
From real-time collaboration methods, to anywhere anytime learning for our students, to using technology to manage our facilities - technology is integrated into all that we do in our universities today. Our faculty earnestly work to integrate technology into the classroom to prepare our graduates to compete in today’s technical environment. Supporting our students, faculty, and staff with the necessary tools can be taxing on the daily operations of the university. With ever-changing technology, it’s a real race to stay ahead of the curve.
In higher education we are all facing challenges in regards to technology. While Pittsburg State’s challenges may be slightly different than yours, we share many of the same victories and struggles. We all benefit from this opportunity to connect with our peers for a time of collaboration and learning.
Please take some time to get to know our Pitt State family and enjoy the unique aspects that our campus has to offer. From the Kansas Technology Center, to Carnie Smith Stadium, and finally the beauty of our park like campus environment, we hope that your stay with us is something that you find beneficial and memorable. Best wishes for a successful conference and please come back to visit us at Pittsburg State University!
