April 25th, 2012 Comments off

Folks seem to be having trouble getting to the ITM summer course listings through MyIIT. If you go into MyIIT, select Look Up Classes, select Search By Term: Summer 2012, select Information Tech and Mgmt, and click on “Course Search”, it will then show you a list of ALL courses offered by the department, whether they are offered in the current term or not; it is NOT a list of courses offered this summer. If you select “Advanced Search” instead of  “Course Search”, than select Information Tech and Mgmt, then click on “Section Search”, then it will show you the full list of courses offered this summer. OR just to make your life easier, just see the following PDF file:  Information Technology and Management Summer 20912 Course Offerings

Have you ever thought about what you’d like to change about IIT? About how IIT could be improved?

As part of the new accreditation process of the North Central Association’s Higher Learning Commission (HLC), universities are required to undertake a Quality Improvement Initiative. The Quality Improvement Initiative can be anything intended to significantly improve the quality of the university. The IIT Accreditation Advisory Committee has invited all members of the IIT community–students, faculty and staff–to share your ideas about a quality improvement initiative that IIT might undertake. They’ve set up a website to gather your ideas; you can submit an original idea (in 150 words or less), and/or vote on ideas submitted by others. Don’t be afraid to be bold, but please submit only serious ideas. The idea submission and voting process will be active until April 21, so send your ideas now.  Submit your idea and vote on others’ now:
