Administrative Effectiveness & Student Experience

In order to grow and be effective and efficient, we need to simplify experiences by using fewer systems, reducing redundancy and embracing standardization. This goal can be accomplished by looking at system compatibility, integration capability, automation and electronic workflows. This commitment starts with the procurement process. As the IT governance process continues to mature, a primary goal will be effective prioritization. Human resource capacity planning is also part of this equation.

Partner with colleges and units to reduce redundant systems that create data silos, leverage enterprise solutions whenever possible, improve and streamline business processes, and make good decisions for the University.
