Vision 2006-2011
The College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics is committed to providing state-of-the-art
information technology services and equipment for its students, faculty, and staff. To this end,
the college proposes an ambitious IT plan based on four components:
1. VNet (Virtual Net)
2. VTC (Virtual Technology Center)

"We seek to revolutionize the learning environment for students, to provide faculty with the tools
for dynamic teaching, and to assist staff in achieving greater work productivity."
- The VNet Team
Virtual Net
VNet is a modern Internet service portal for the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. It
is changing the way the college community communicates and exchanges information. It
includes a centralized information environment for administrative and academic services.
VNet is replacing obsolete and time-consuming paper forms with
modern Web-based electronic forms. Faculty and administrative
staff are able to access their financial accounts in real time and
approve purchases in a secure environment accessible from any part
