Improvement

PBITWhiteWeb

Due to changes in the Information Technology organizational structure, a change has been proposed that would turn ACUG into ITAG (Information Technology Advisory Group). 

The Information Technology Advisory Group is a standing sharing and steering committee of IT stakeholders from academic and administrative units of the university, facilitated by the Office of the CIO, that functions in an advisory capacity to ITEC.

Voting members of ITAG are appointed by colleges (and administrative units); others may attend informally.

The committee is responsible for:  Sharing information about technology issues and opportunities across campus.  Raising issues and opportunities on behalf of constituents.  Communicating information back to constituents.  Investigating and evaluating issues and opportunities as needed.  Informing and advising ITEC of campus technology needs, risks, and opportunities.

  • Raising issues and opportunities on behalf of constituents. 
  • Communicating information back to constituents.
