The field of computer information systems is constantly evolving as new systems are developed, new software programs designed and new theories brought into play (have you been in a cloud lately?). Our faculty members have active research programs that keep them at the cutting edge of CIS technology, not only able to spot trends and predict the next industry direction, but also help to create new knowledge to help build that industry.
Colorado State University is a land grant institution with equal missions in teaching, research and outreach. Faculty members in the Department of Computer Information Systems help support those missions through excellence in teaching, innovation in research, and reaching out to CIS communities through service programs and continuing education.
It is our research, though, that informs our teaching and creates new knowledge to share with others. Our faculty members have diverse research programs.
