Help Us Name the New IT System!

Been hearing rumblings about a new, single point of contact IT system coming this summer?  

Great! We want you to travel this journey with us and help us name the new system. We have picked a few potential names, but we need YOU to help us pick the name you like best.   

Look for a name that resonates with you, that reaches out and grabs you, that says, “This is the only place I need to go to find everything IT-related.”  

Please take this super-quick survey to select the name of our new IT system! 

Helpdesk is currently available via phone 901.448.2222 (Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm) or email
