Network Infrastructure Project

Project Goals 

The primary goal of the Network Infrastructure Project is to provide better, faster network connectivity and fulfill the academic, social connectivity, and general communication needs of our students, faculty, and staff, as these needs continue to evolve. The multi-year project includes work on both the core network and infrastructure at the building level. Work has started on the core network foundation. Some building work will need to wait for core upgrades; other building work can be completed in parallel. 

Recent Progress

Core foundation network investments: over $18 million invested since summer 2014.
