The goal of the VSU Information Technology Helpdesk is to provide resolution of hardware and software problems in a timely and effective manner.
Every individual who uses information technology, from the experimenter and early adopter to the resister, has questions at one time or another. These problems and questions are often frustrating to solve, particularly where there is confusion about who to call. The VSU Information Technology Helpdesk will provide a single focal point for problem resolution.
