The mission of ATLAS is to provide reliable and secure information technology services that support and enhance the educational, research and administrative activities of students, faculty and staff in LAS.

Information technology is pervasive, enabling, empowering, and always changing. Using information technologies requires knowledge of the tools and the ability to discriminate among the many options, training in the use of the tools, and the ready availability of a human and IT support infrastructure that can relieve instructors and researchers of the burdens of installation, ongoing maintenance, and security of the tools.
