Join the IT Governance Planning Process!

Please accept this as your personal invitation to participate in a committee that has been working on IT Governance. Since the Spring semester of 2013, a subcommittee of UTAG and others have been working on a proposal that includes elements of other universities’ implementations, adapted for implementation at Western Illinois University. The meetings, which are held on Mondays at 3:00 p.m. in Library 180, are open to the entire campus community. We’d love to have you join us!

Based on feedback received after the first draft of the IT Governance proposal was posted for comment on uTech’s website, some changes were made. The most notable of these changes was to the membership of the Alliances (the working groups that research and make finalized proposals). The committee has also clarified some of the details of the proposal and developed forms to be used in the IT governance processes. The latest version is available on uTech’s Website.

Provided that 2013-2018 IT Strategic Plan, which calls for the establishment of IT governance, is approved by the Board of Trustees on October 11, the President’s Cabinet, Faculty Senate and SGAs will begin appointing members to the Alliances.  Prior to its implementation, there is still work to be done on planning for IT governance… and we need your input!
