Having served at SUNY Potsdam for more than 30 years, Prescott has been witness to, and now helps shape the ongoing development of, information technology on campus. Prescott will give a brief history of Computing and Technology Services, report on the current state of the office and talk about resources of support for those making use of technology as part of their curricula and research, both on-campus and off.
