Common Good Resources Philosophy

Common Good Resources Philosophy

The Common Good Services described here are the information technology solutions, networks, systems, storage, and computing resources that are beneficial and critical for teaching, research, service, and administration.  These services are provided for all members of the Oakland University community.  There is a general expectation that these critical services are always on and available. These resources are not customized or specialized for a department, but are the basic infrastructure services that research university constituents and communities expect to be available for the entire community.  Providing these resources and services with high quality and reliability is our highest priority.

Please review all items under Common Good Services on the left menu bar.  Additional information about Campus Software is here: .   Additional information about Storage is here:  

Other services may be provided as  "Good Will Services".   Good Will Services are not guaranteed.
