Information Technology

Computers are powerful tools for teaching and learning. Today's information technology offers students and faculty the power to explore, question and research every imaginable topic. Marist College is a leader in incorporating technology as a critical part of the education process.

The College's long-term and substantial commitment to technology now allows faculty to share their teaching resources and interact with students 24 hours a day.

Technology also allows students to easily communicate with other students, faculty and staff, and the world outside the College. Via a powerful connection to the Internet and World Wide Web, students are interacting with prospective graduate schools and employers and discovering much more about their prospective career avenues.

Students have access to numerous powerful multimedia capable machines housed in labs across campus, as well as network connections in each residence. These connections help ensure that every student has the full range of information technology, including Internet access, available at his or her fingertips 24 hours a day. But you don't have to be a computer whiz to use the facilities - computer courses are offered for all levels, and help is available any hour of the day.

Marist has joined forces with IBM, the Library of Congress and several other notable academic institutions to develop the digital library of the future. Entering students will play an important part in helping identify key learning components that will comprise the final form of this leading-edge resource center.

There is no doubt among Marist faculty and administration that our students must be prepared to face an increasingly complex and information-rich world. A Marist education provides our graduates with powerful decision-making abilities and the information technology skills that clearly distinguish them from graduates of other institutions.
