Media Services

Media Services provides a range of services for the college and its constituents, from poster printing, equipment loan, to the technical aspects of classroom technology and event support. We offer media production services and our Media Production Lab is equipped with workstations for scanning, CD-R and DVD-R burning, graphics manipulation, and audio/video editing. Our primary responsibility is to assure that classroom technology is functional, easy to use, and supports the variety of teaching approaches adopted by end users. In addition to classroom support, Media Services serves an essential role in providing technical AV support for campus sponsored events, whether in person or virtual.

Note: If you are encountering a classroom technology emergency, please contact us immediately at extension 5940. If no one is available to take your call, please contact the Helpdesk at extension 5900.
