CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – The Pikeville College Information Technology department chose Campbellsville University as the location for this year’s annual team building retreat recently.
“Each year we pick a school we can learn from,” said Robbie A. Scott, director of information technology at Pikeville, “and this year we are proud to be visiting Campbellsville.”
The two departments first met and shared ideas at meetings of the Association of Independent Kentucky Colleges and Universities (AIKCU). Pikeville College is also a private, four-year Christian school. It is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church.
After being welcomed by the CU Information Technology staff, andlodged in one of the Village residences on campus, their team building activities began. Over the next few days they spent most of their time exploring ways to work better together, with more efficiency and less stress in the year ahead.
“They have been a blessing and an inspiration for us,” said Hermano Queiroz, CU director of information technology. “They are truly good neighbors in Christian higher education.” He said the Pikeville IT department has recently shared methods that enabled CU to begin the new video streaming feature on the campbellsville.edu Web site.
