Innovating IT, Empowering CSU


Our values define who we are, tell our story, and drive our decisions and actions.


Invested in each other’s success, we value and support our family of team members and campus partners, and we share a common purpose.


Our reason for existing. We value responsive and responsible customer service, knowing and empowering our constituents, and delivering efficient and effective solutions.


Dedicated to being dependable IT partners, we draw on our combined experience, creativity, and accrued knowledge in our commitment to excellence.


We aspire to champion bold transformation by adopting the pillars of simplicity—stability, predictability, modularity, and reliability—to drive elegant innovation, ethical and sustainable use of resources, and proactive decision making.


Guided by CSU’s commitment to a rich vision of community, we aspire to nurture equity and inclusion, act with openness and integrity, foster respect for all people, contribute to local and global well-being, and promote social justice.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI)

Co-Chairs: Jo Sampson & Adam Warren; Sponsor: Kris Seidel

Committee Happenings

The DEI Committee invites the division to participate in one of our monthly Diversity, Equity and Inclusion open houses where we have open dialogue about current events or issues, present learning opportunities or share resources and ideas, form DEI allies and relationships to build skills and enable a common language, and identify areas of concern within our division and determine where resources need to be dedicated to advance our DEI initiatives.

Please send a note to Marie Frank to be added to one of these Teams meeting.


Professional Development (PD) includes individual learning and growth in a role, as well as career development. It is also a tool for managers and supervisors to ensure that their teams have the right skillsets for today’s services and those that are being considered for the future.

PD can be as simple as self-study of books and web resources, or as complex as lengthy training programs and certifications. It can be delivered on the job, through participation in committees and initiatives, or through attending conferences. Deciding to pursue a PD opportunity can be an individual choice, or may be suggested by a supervisor. And, as employees of an institution of higher education, we also have the opportunity to grow by engaging the academy: don’t forget CSU’s Employee Study Benefit!

A new process has been launched to request funding for those PD opportunities that involve a cost. Requests will be evaluated beginning on the 2nd Friday of each month, and can be submitted using a form on the Professional Development Request channel of the Division of Central IT team.

As part of their committee work this summer, the Communications Initiative Team developed email recommendations for staff to more efficiently and effectively communicate via email. Check out the recommendation guide and implement these in your daily communications as you see fit.

Also, check out this “Effective Email Communication” blog post from the Vice President for Research – Office of Sponsored Programs, for additional suggestions for writing effective emails.
