About ATS

All Academic Technology Services projects are guided by three principles: ​​

1. Incubate innovations sufficiently to enable campus adoption in a timely, cost-effective and successful manner. 

2. Develop shared services for cost effectiveness and shared expertise in the CSU community for effectively adopting and using technologies. ​

3. Leverage the size of the CSU to reduce costs of academic technology shared services.


The staff of ATS is here to help you successfully use our resources and expertise to advance your academic technology initiatives. Our distributed team is eager to bring you their expertise and consultative support.  If you have questions or want to explore ideas on how to use our resources, please contact us​ so we can help and support you.

The ATS team works with CSU campus leaders, faculty, librarians and academic technology staff to implement a variety of sustainable and scalable academic technology projects.​
