Initiatives and Projects

Upgrading systems, integrating new tools, building an infrastructure, projecting future needs, supporting current needs—all achieved by managing a constantly moving portfolio of projects. At any given time IT Services staff members and their partners in the University community have 40-50 open projects.

Project ideas come from a variety of sources:

  • Work required to meet legal or other mandates
  • Work that keeps the systems running
  • Institutional projects linked to University goals

Most, however, have their genesis in working with colleagues to seek new, more efficient tools that empower us to be better teachers, managers, researchers, or whatever role we fulfill.
