CSG supports managed Windows and Linux loads, file services (including backup), departmental and personal web hosting, mail, public printers, account creation/maintenance, DNS, DHCP, helpdesk, authentication electronic door locks, and a hot disaster recovery site for core services.
The goal of the CSG team is to improve the quality of education and research through out the Mathematical Sciences Departments by working together with faculty and staff to maximize the availability of core network services and provide exceptional support to our customers.
The CSG group consists five full time staff.
