Green IT

Green IT

We value responsible use of all resources. OU IT professionals have adopted a Green Strategy. Our GreenIT strategy includes:

  • Emphasizing power efficiency
  • Virtualization to minimize hardware
  • Using equipment so that refresh cycles are purposeful
  • Recycling equipment
  • Minimizing paper
  • Turn it off initiative
Active initiatives include:
  • Implementation of campus-wide Wepa printing kiosks.  PrintReleaf announced that Wepa has chosen PrintReleaf to reforest its entire printing production.  
  • Forms with workflows all online continue to be developed and implemented.  A full selection of available online routable forms is presented in the Administrative Forms directory.
  • Campus offices are making full use of the Ellucian Banner Document Management solution.  Online storage options reduce printing; review Sharing, Storage, and Learning Services to make the right choice for storage.
  • Parchment transcript services have been enabled for electronic exchange of high school student transcripts.
