“Progress always involves risk; You can’t steal second base and keep your foot on first.” – Frederick Wilcox

This year challenged the Bearkat community to step out of our comfort zone to create unique learning opportunities for our students. This semester, we took another step in the right direction by adopting new processes and technology to enhance teaching methods and academic support services.

Let’s keep pushing ourselves to innovate and advance the campus experience for our SHSU students. Here are a couple of research-based resources to get you started:

  • Educause – Focuses on advancing higher education with data driven research, knowledge articles, professional development and collaboration
  • MyGartner – Provides research and analysis services to inform and support decision making in higher education

As we all know, things change in an instant, so let’s continue to progress SHSU into this new phase of working and learning while committing to making positive changes for our future. The IT@Sam team looks forward to joining you in helping campus continue to evolve.
