071.8 Information Technology Advisory Council

 

A. Background

In order to provide a campus leadership perspective on the university strategic plans for Information Technology Services, Furman University establishes the Information Technology Advisory Council (ITAC).

 

B. Policy

The ITAC functions as the primary campus advisory group for the University?s department of Information Technology Services. Council members provide insight and advice for technology initiatives affecting campus constituencies, serve as advocates for strategic information services initiatives, and advise the Chief Information Officer (See File 071.0 ) and the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean on prioritizing the University?s Information Technology Services strategic goals. The ITAC accepts recommendations and advice from the Academic Computing Committee and the Association of Furman Students. The ITAC's function is to provide advice and guidance on higher-level information technology strategy, rather than tactics and day-to-day operational decisions.

 

C. Guidelines

1. Members of the Information Technology Advisory Council are expected to meet monthly. The Chief Information Officer (CIO) chairs the committee and establishes the agenda for committee meetings.

2. Membership of the Information Technology Advisory Council is to consist of members of the staff and faculty as follows:

a. Chief Information Officer (chair)

b. Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean (ex-officio)
