Joeleen Monclova is an Information Technology Consultant in the Academic Technologies and Innovation department of ITS, and is currently assisting in the Distance Learning Classroom upgrade for the CSUSB Palm Desert Campus (PDC). Joeleen is fairly new to this position as an Information Technology Consultant and feels updating the three Distance Learning Classrooms will be an invaluable experience. She says, “This project gives me the opportunity to see what it takes to create a Distance Learning Classroom from the planning stages to completion while familiarizing myself with the new technology. Once completed, students and professors will have the opportunity to experience this innovative technology first-hand.”
Joeleen has worked at CSUSB for eight years. She received her Bachelor of Arts with an Emphasis in Graphic Design from CSUSB. She is very proud to work in the ITS department and believes, “Our purpose here is to provide excellent world-class customer service through the use of technology to the campus community. Our area allows us to offer the same great first-class customer support to students, faculty, and staff at the Palm Desert campus, as on the CSUSB main campus. With our distance learning classrooms, we can give students the opportunity to attend classes and learn from the best professors from both campuses without the commute.”
On a personal level, Joeleen’s favorite travel destination is Barcelona, Spain. She especially loves the food and the beautiful historic architecture. The next stop on her bucket list is Greece. Joeleen also enjoys Mediterranean food, and her current favorite TV shows are; Scandal and Once Upon A Time. She is also a vintage collector, jive dancer, and just loves anything from the 1940s-1960’s; including vintage jewelry and purses, record hops, and rockabilly weekenders to name a few.
To Joeleen, CSUSB holds great meaning in her life. She says, “Not only does it mean I can give back to my Alma Mater, by providing support to the campus community every day, but I can pay it forward to help pave the way for future graduates of CSUSB.”
