The ALCO Support Services team provides day-to-day “break/fix” support for common hardware and software issues, and assists with procuring new technology for the College of Arts & Letters.

The Support Services team works closely with several other University IT teams including the OIT Help Desk, the Campus Workstation Program, and the Hammes Tech Hub’s Service Department.

If you need immediate help, please contact the OIT Help Desk through the ServiceNow web portal. If the Help Desk is unable to provide the assistance you need, your case will be routed to the ALCO Support Services team.

Creative Computing Group

The Creative Computing Group (CCG) was created in 2003 by the College of Arts and Letters to provide leadership and resources to support and encourage specialized and advanced computing technologies in the arts.

The Group fosters initiatives in research and teaching that seek new paradigms of literacy through a critical and creative exploration of emerging forms of visual communication.

The CCG is committed to the cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas and skills for the purpose of encouraging artistic collaboration, faculty research and curricular innovation.
