To date, the draft 2013-2018 IT Strategic Plan and the new IT Governance proposal have been shared with the President’s leadership team, the deans and directors of Academic Affairs, the leadership of the Faculty Senate, the leadership of the Student Government Association at the Macomb and Quad Cities campuses and the University Technology Advisory Group. We are continuing to meet with other groups on campus as the opportunities arise.
While we will be scheduling open forums on both campuses for discussion, we are now seeking considered input from all students, faculty and staff. To this end, we have created a special web page for the purpose of gathering feedback from the University community. The link to it may be found on uTech’s site at www.wiu.edu/utech at the top of the right-hand panel (just above the link to the CIO’s blog). After clicking on the link, you will be prompted for your WIU network credentials. This page not only provides links to these two new documents and a mechanism for gathering comments, but it also includes links to view the comments that have been submitted. Comments are displayed without identifying who submitted them.
Comments are requested through September 13, 2013. This cutoff date allows time for final editing and approval before the documents are submitted for inclusion with materials that go to the Board of Trustees prior to their October 11 meeting.
Thank you for your participation in this most important endeavor!
