Academic Technology Request Process Spring 2017

In order to manage a growing catalog of software titles, Webster University’s Information Technology organization will assess all new software requests based on a number of factors in coordination with the programs of each school.

These factors include: the product life cycle, the vendor’s support structure for the software, compatibility with Webster’s PC/Mac platforms, and the product’s global roadmap, among other considerations. This is in alignment with the themes of the University’s strategic plan, Global Impact for the Next Century.
The lab and multimedia classroom software request deadline for Spring 2017 is Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2016. Please submit software requests to the Information Technology Service Management Office-Software Management via email at
All requests are provided to the Department Chairs to identify opportunities to support the curriculum and for budget approval and planning. We cannot guarantee that requests received after this deadline will be installed by the start of Spring 2017 classes. We will work with academic Department Chairs to evaluate requests, plan for installation and communicate necessary information to faculty for course preparation.

Thank you for helping us prepare the labs and multimedia classrooms for Spring 2017 classes. Requests to install software on individual faculty or staff computers for instructional or administrative purposes should be submitted via work order. Requests for software not yet licensed by the University will require additional time for approval, procurement and testing.
