The IT Governance is responsible for assuring that IT investments align to generate academic and business value by achieving institutional goals, while balancing risk vs. return. IT Governance determines the decision rights and accountability framework for the use of technology at the University. It focuses specifically on IT infrastructure, software applications, and systems; business and academic processes; IT services and their performance; and risk management. Committee membership includes academic and administrative leaders of all key functional areas of the university.
