SAIT Staff

Our team is organized in a hybrid design where team members are in functional groups based on the type of services they provide, as well as in location-specific groups based on the specific department they support. The Applications and Websites Team supports custom applications and websites for our Student Affairs departments and act as our data steward. The Systems and Operations team provide our server infrastructure which hosts our websites, custom applications and many 3rd-party applications. They also provide traditional end-user computer support. The ResNET Team are central ITS employees but are fully dedicated to and funded by Carolina Housing with a close connection and collaboration with SAIT. The SAIT Director also serves on the campus IT Executive Council and attends monthly staff meetings with the UNC CIO and Vice Chancellor for IT, to ensure that we maximize the use of central IT services and minimize duplication of effort.
