Project Description

As part of a User Services Revitalization initiative, calls to the Service Center during business hours will be answered by full-time staff starting at the end of January. The team will also be reviewing and formalizing support processes with the goal of improving response and resolution times as well as better handling of service requests that involve multiple areas of UT. As they always have, our students will continue to play a vital role in customer support.


On January 26, 2015, University Technology full-time staff began answering Service Center calls during business hours. Experienced student assistants are covering the phones between 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm, as well as during evening hours (5:00 pm - 10:00 pm).

Coming Next

University Technology will present the results of our Drew Employee Customer Satisfaction Survey, which was conducted late last year. 130 members of the Drew Community responded to the survey, and the feedback is informative and actionable. User Services is working on plans for responding to the information, comments, and suggestions gathered from the survey. We thank everyone who participated for taking the time to supply valuable responses to inform this revitalization.
