The Office of the Assistant Vice President for IT (CIT) frames what we do, how we do IT, and why. Our IT vision is to develop high-performance SMART teams that transforms Hampton University’s technology status by building advanced technology platforms, inspiring intellectual curiosity and promoting professional technical aptitude for Hampton University’s student, faculty and administrative family.
Working with our diverse professional staff to achieve this evolving and ever-changing vision, the CIT strives to achieve THE Standard of Excellence. The AVP IT, Dr. Alissa Harrison, reports directly to Hampton’s SVP who serves as the CIT’s advocate to the University’s senior administrative level.
Provide secure, reliable, integrated, and SMART technological solutions that align with Hampton University’s academic, business, administrative, and research goals while simultaneously providing the highest levels of customer support.
To accomplish the mission, we will:
Mr. Robbie Harper, Network Services
Mr. Darien Hawkins, Director of the Computer Center
Mr. Larry Ingram, Academic Technology Mall/Help Desk
Ms. Princess LIpscomb, ERP Services
Mr. Derrick Rea, Web Services
Mr. Kevin Ricks, Director of Media Productions

In everything that we do, we believe in THE Standard of Excellence. We believe in leveraging our high-performance teams to transform Hampton University’s technology status and promoting a professional technical experience for Hampton University’s student, faculty, research, and administrative family.
The way we transform HU’s technology Standard of Excellence status is by integrating our Computer Center, Web, Networking, Media Productions, Help Desk and Blackboard/Educational Services so that we provide seamless services that offer a truly advanced technological experience for our Hampton family.
The diverse members of the Information Technology Advisory Committee (ITAC) support academic and administrative interests of the faculty, staff, students, and parents of Hampton University by promoting the innovative and transformative use of information technology.
An important aim of this group is to further Hampton’s mission and goals through the effective use of information technologies. More importantly, the ITAC charter is to advise and offer Hampton’s leadership recommendations in support of the strategic objectives that support and develop needed guidelines, policies and standard IT practices at the university.
The Chair and committee members, empowered representatives from the Hampton community (e.g., faulty, students, administrators), will solicit input and contributions from the Ex Officio members and greater Hampton leadership for how and when priority projects should be implemented.
The ITAC will publish meeting notes quarterly, and publish an annual report of the ITAC’s direction, achievements, and projected goals for each upcoming year.
