Campus Macintosh Support Groups

Question

What support/training/user groups meet on NC State Campus?

Answer

There are two groups which exist on the NC State campus to deal with Macintosh and Apple Technology related issues.
MacPolicy and MacTech. MacPolicy and MacTech are steering and training groups sponsored by OIT to help make choices on how OIT supports, trains, and deploys Apple Technology. These groups also share technical and purchasing knowledge for mutual benefit. These groups were chartered in July 1998 and have met continously since.


What is the MacPolicy group?
MacPolicy is a group open to any NC State University community member with purchasing and planning responsibility for a unit (e.g., department, program, college). This group meets to review and make suggestions to OIT as to direction and desired outcome for any changes regarding the support, purchasing, and deployment of Apple Technology. MacPolicy is a working group of the ITSAC Client & Application Support Subcommittee. In general, this group meets the second Tuesday of each quarter (i.e., Feb, May, Aug, Nov) in B16-B Hillsborough Building at 1:30 pm. The steering and oversight of this group is considered by OIT but is not binding.
