Learn about how our mission supports USC’s strategic vision for teaching, learning, and research.

CST is highly collaborative and operates with a strong belief in governance for services, projects, and programs that have campus-wide impact. We invite your input. Find opportunities to join advisory committees and contribute to the direction of services, resources, infrastructure, and policies related to teaching with technology at USC.

Outreach and timely communication with USC’s academic community is a top priority. To that end, CST distributes a quarterly digital newsletter to inform faculty about changes to services, new resources, upcoming events and grant opportunities, and to highlight innovative teaching with technology approaches.

CST maintains several institutional memberships in national and international organizations that offer benefits such as access to online resources, webinars, and discounts for conference registrations.

Educational Technologies is a group within Information Technology Services (ITS) and the Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL) division that is represented and known on campus as the Center for Scholarly Technology (CST). CST collaborates across ITS and works closely with colleagues in TEL’s other groups: Web Services and Learning Environments.
