2. OUCS Mission statement

The OUCS mission statement is to:

'Foster and support excellence, innovation, best practice, and value for money in the use of IT in teaching, learning and research across the University'.

This has continually informed the department's direction, which shows growing use of core services by the collegiate University and new developments such as wireless provision, podcasting and Groupware. OUCS delivers relevant high quality IT services to University staff, students and the wider academic community, and needs to further develop this to support the University of Oxford’s mission statement:

'to achieve and sustain excellence in every area of its teaching and research, maintaining and developing its historical position as a world-class university, and enriching the international, national, and regional communities through the fruits of its research and the skills of its graduates'.
