The mission of the college’s Information Technology (IT) unit is to support and enhance the college’s academic and administrative initiatives and operations.
The IT unit’s main office is located at the college’s Swainsboro location in the George L. Smith II Building. The unit also has an office (Room H1705) in the Nessmith-Lane Building at the college’s Statesboro location on the Georgia Southern University campus.
