We’re engaged in a campus-wide process to think of new ways that the entire campus community can manage IT and how technology can support the mission of the University. Our goal is to think about the business of the University and how and where information technology can add the most value. Hundreds of faculty, staff and students have helped list and prioritize ways in which campus-provided technology can help them do their work more efficiently. This site describes our process, priorities and goals as well as the projects underway to address them.
