10 University of Kansas HVC2 Student Services, June 2, 2004 In the beginning… Met with a variety of people to discuss services provided to students on campus (Julie Loats, KU Portal, Bob Turvey, SA System Administrator, and Tom Roderick, Student Technology Coordinator)

11 University of Kansas HVC2 Student Services, June 2, 2004 Basic Assumptions Service providers need to overcome “silo” mentality and break down barriers. Students should not need to understand how the university is organized in order to utilize services.

12 University of Kansas HVC2 Student Services, June 2, 2004 Basic Assumptions Students need a universal help desk that is seamless in structure, easy to use, highly visible and identifiable, and reliable. Students need services in multiple formats, (in-person, phone, , IM, etc.) and assurances that all service formats are accessible for all, including those with disabilities.

13 University of Kansas HVC2 Student Services, June 2, 2004 Basic Assumptions Students need support that anticipates their increasing reliance on technology.

14 University of Kansas HVC2 Student Services, June 2, 2004 What to do with all this information?
