Survey System

The ETC Survey System’s purpose is to administer online surveys for numerous clients. This system handles report generation and distribution for those clients. The system allows for both course based (e.g. Course Evaluations) and non-course based (e.g. Student Services) surveys.

Environmental Health and Safety Training

Environmental Health and Safety is responsible for development, oversight, and management of environmental health and safety programs that protect the environment, provide safe and healthy conditions for work and study, and comply with applicable laws and regulations.

Graduate Letters of Recommendation

Online Graduate Letters of Recommendation is an online service that allows graduate school applicants to solicit letters of recommendations to be sent to the graduate school. The system provides an interface for referrers to input and/or upload the recommendation. The recommendation is then uploaded to a network share where the program specialist can process it.

Graduate Contracts

Graduate Contracts is an online service to facilitate the creation and acceptance of graduate assistantship/tuition scholarship (GATS). This system guides departmental, graduate studies, and administrative staff through the process of creating and signing the contract online.

  • It was a pleasure working with the Emerging Technology Center in the development of an online tenure and promotion system at ETSU.  The staff are top notch, attentive to client needs, and committed to finding workable solutions to problems.

  • We have worked with ETSU’s ETC to develop two systems so far, an electronic system for our graduate assistant contracts and an electronic letter of recommendation system for applications.  Both of these facilitate our operations and streamline the workflow. The LOR system works well with our electronic application referral system and the GA contract system has really smoothed out the process and made it more transparent.  The folks at ETC are fantastic to work with and we are exploring additional processes and opportunities.
