Our growing community will gain the benefits of a large IT organization, including 24/7, 365 days/year support and access to secure, HIPAA-compliant services. To ensure we meet the IT needs of all of the schools, each school has a representative on our governance committees, as well as input and shared oversight of the DGIT project portfolio.

What is DGIT?

DGIT is focusing on refining our support and providing a greater experience for you, our clients in the areas of research, teaching, and administration of the academy. DGIT's efforts are composed of the three pillars:

Client Experience

We are committed to bringing a more personal approach to your support. To this effort, we have rolled out Client Service Pods to all the departments we support to allow our Desktop Support Technicians and Desktop Support Managers to become better acquainted with the technological environment and needs of your department.
