“We are excited to offer Information Technology for the first time as a degree option
for the East Tennessee region,” said Mona Salyer, director of recruitment for Graduate

patterned after guidelines recommended by the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM),

and assess their applicability to address the users' needs; and analyze the impact
of technology on individuals, organizations and society, including ethical, legal
and policy issues.
Graduates will also be able to demonstrate an understanding of best practices and
standards and their application, as well as demonstrate independent critical thinking
and problem solving skills, collaborate in teams to accomplish a common goal by integrating
