The Instructional Services unit provides faculty with a central source of support for a variety of interactive technologies for use in the veterinary curriculum and beyond. It utilizes the combined talents of all the IT & Educational faculty and staff to work as a team to complete projects that involve multimedia and instructional design. Our mission statement is "Quality Information Anytime Anywhere." Our goals are to:
