IT Mission Statement: Deliver, Lead, Innovate
The IT Division is responsible for technology delivery, leadership and innovation to achieve Lehman's strategic vision of transforming lives and communities.
We deliver by being accountable for the reliable, service-oriented and transparent management of computing, data, network, telecommunications, help desk, multimedia and web resources that are responsive to the needs of the College.
We lead by implementing contemporary technologies that enhance the quality of teaching, learning, research and work experiences, adding measurable value for the students, faculty, staff, alumni and communities we serve.
We innovate by advancing a forward-thinking, seamless and collaborative technology environment that increases efficiency and ensures the highest quality education.
The Division of Information Technology provides access to computing and related technologies in support of the College's instructional, research, and administrative activities.

The Media Technology Services Office of ITR, also housed in Carman Hall, provides equipment and technical aids for the production of media presentations using photography, graphics, films, slides, and other media assets.
