Reporting to the offices of Development and Alumni Affairs, Information Management Services (IMS) maintains the central computer environment–hardware, software, and database–that supports the institution's efforts to maintain and cultivate relations with alumni and donors.

In addition, IMS provides desktop and laptop support for system users working in the Office of Alumni Affairs and Office of Development, ensuring that the tools deployed for operations are current, technically sound, and protected from viruses. IMS produces numerous reports, files, and other output based on information that resides on the central database, and works in conjunction with several departments to maintain consistently-updated, accurate data in the central system.
