UCR’s central IT organization, Information Technology Solutions (ITS), has recently invested in industry-leading technology, including robust communication and collaboration tools. In this session attendees will learn how to leverage the available technology to create a more connected campus community, bolster cross-departmental collaboration, enhance campus-wide communication, improve workflows, and cultivate a positive workplace culture in an increasingly dynamic and hybrid work environment.


Track:  Driving Your Career Forward

Having earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies from Chapman University and a Master of Arts in Human Communication Studies from California State University, Fullerton, it's clear that mathematics is her least favorite subject. Joking aside, Alex found her niche in STEM communication when she started her career in the environmental testing industry. Since then, her technical communication skills, business acumen, and college teaching experience have catapulted her into higher education IT.
