The School of Public Health and Health Sciences at UMass provides IT Services and Support to its faculty and staff through its Information Technology office. The SPHHS maintains a server, which provides secure hard disk space for research projects, accessible from faculty offices. The server is protected by IBM Proventia Server Intrusion Protection System software firewall, centrally managed and monitored 24 hours by the University’s Office of Information Technologies. Data stored on the server can be shared with research collaborators, and is backed up daily, with tapes stored off-site.
Two classrooms in SPHHS have a computer and AV equipment with overhead projectors. The department has additional equipment available for shared use, including Windows laptops and portable digital projectors. A computer lab with fifteen Windows 7 computers, is available for faculty, staff and student use.
