Posted June 28, 2013

ACU received an honorable mention certificate in the category of Small Size Institutions for Institutional Excellence in Information Communication Technology from the Association of Information Communications Technology Professionals in Higher Education (ACUTA).

The honorable mention was presented to Kevin Roberts, vice president of planning and operations, for ACU’s Virtual Desktop Project during ACUTA’s 42nd annual Conference and Exhibition, held April 16 in San Diego, Calif. The citation for Institutional Excellence in Information Communication Technology is ACUTA's most prestigious award, recognizing information technology excellence and professionalism.

The Virtual Desktop Project was a collaborative effort by faculty, staff and students from ACU's Department of Information Technology and its College of Business Administration. Initiated in 2010, the pilot project is an effort to extend computing resources beyond physical computer labs. Leveraging desktop virtualization, ACU faculty, staff and students can access desktop applications from any device, any time, anywhere.
