The Information Technology Executive Committee (ITEC) is advised by the ITEC Advisory Council (IAC) that functions at the ITEC’s direction. The IAC considers matters of policy, operations and management of the IT environment at the University. Matters of policy are reviewed and referred to the ITEC for its consideration and possible action.

The IAC is comprised of:

  • Vice President for Information Technology (chair)
  • Director of Academic Computing and Networking Services
  • Director of Information Systems
  • One member appointed by the Provost
  • Dean of the Libraries, or representative appointed by the Dean of Libraries

  • One member appointed by the Vice President for Public Affairs
  • One member appointed by the Vice President for Research

A quorum of the IAC shall consist of a majority of voting members and shall be necessary for action. Non-operational matters are to be decided by two-thirds majority vote. In the case of a tie, the vote shall be determined by the vote of the chair. In the case of a tie where the chair does not vote or abstains, the motion shall fail.

Scope of Activities

All matters of policy, strategy, and management of the IT environment should be reviewed by the IAC and forwarded to the ITEC for its consideration. Normally, the IAC prepares or revises drafts of policy, strategy, and management of the IT environment, circulates them widely for consideration by interested parties at the University, and reviews them at its meetings. The IAC then develops a recommendation for the ITEC and forwards the matter to the ITEC for its consideration.

The IAC also considers operational aspects of the IT environment. On operational matters where consensus is achieved, via a two-thirds vote required for approval of an item, the IAC may take action unilaterally. Alternatively, if a two-thirds majority is not achieved, a motion to refer the matter to the ITEC for its consideration may be made, and approved by a one-third vote. Should a one-third vote not be attained on an item, then individuals may bring the matter forth via other channels to their representative on the ITEC.

The IAC seeks input and counsel from various sources including technology managers, ad hoc committees such as, among others, the University Information Technology Support Services (UTISS) committee, the University Instructional Technology Committee (UITC), and interested and qualified individuals. Matters to be considered by the IAC are to be forwarded to the AVPIIT for inclusion on the IAC’s agenda.

The IAC may constitute and charge subordinate ad hoc committees as necessary to meet its objectives.
