Best known as the home of MyUCLA, CIS has long played an important role in the development of applications and the management of projects designed to support students, staff and faculty campus-wide. As a part of the College of Letters & Science, the scale of CIS's activities ranges widely -- from a new Degree Audit System which, when implemented, will affect upwards of 50,000 students, to locally circumscribed projects like the College Honors Scholarships online application, whose target audience was fewer than 1500 students. Visit our Projects page for more information about work currently in development or recently placed in production.
The founding mission and ongoing commitment of CIS, however, is to provide technical support for the administrative division (Honors and Undergraduate Programs) and the executive branch (Office of the Provost and Deans) of the College of Letters & Science. In this capacity CIS is responsible for:
- Creating customized applications and reports upon request
- Developing departmental websites
- Maintaining network infrastructure (storing user files, ensuring system security)
- Supporting user workstations (purchasing, configuring and installing system hardware and software, troubleshooting)
