Where are We Going?

Information Technology Services is currently revising its strategic plan to help Lerner leverage the benefits of an advanced infrastructure and support framework.

Key areas of our strategic plan

Increase Operations Efficiencies

Deploy new software tools to improve the management of computer patching, maintenance and upgrades, as well as ticket management.

Improve the Usability and Stability of Our Website

Upgrade the organizational website to increase customer interactions by improving searching capabilities, structural upgrades and software upgrades.

Organizational development/optimization

Provide access to training, skills development and professional development for staff to elevate the level of service provided to clients.

Change the Existing Organizational Culture and Physical Environment

Create a tiered support structure, increase the physical staffing, revitalize current workspaces and develop a mission statement to create a shared purpose.

Adopted the Run, Grow, Transform

To maintain exceptional technological standards, while maneuvering Lerner College into a leadership role for the integration of information technology into management practice.

Smooth sailing

The information technology group is dedicated to providing faculty, staff and students smooth sailing through the fast paced and ever changing waters that is information technology.

The Lerner College is home to a state-of-the-art financial trading facility, the $1.5 million student-led Blue Hen Investment Club, a student-managed restaurant and hotel, a high-technology development center of a global bank and a start-up experience for students with new business ideas.

Undergraduate scholarships, made possible through the generosity of alumni and friends, enable us to support promising scholars. Here, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell and his mother, Leni Markell, join recipients of the William Markell Scholarship (center), which benefits students in Accounting and MIS.

The Institute for Financial Services Analytics is a collaboration between the Lerner College, UD's College of Engineering and JPMorgan Chase, and hosts events for academics and the business community designed to address consumer analytics and industry applications.

All Lerner College departments offer discovery learning experiences and emphasize data-based analytics to enrich the student experience. Here, students at Vita Nova, our award-winning restaurant run through HRIM, joined professional chefs and winemakers in hosting a 2014 Mid-Atlantic Wine and Food Festival event.

Lerner College faculty - like Meryl Gardner, whose research on foods and moods was recently published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology - are thought leaders who command attention from influential business audiences, economists and policy makers.
