ND IT Stewardship
"Becoming the Notre Dame the world needs will require the University to become better at thinking as an institution."
ND IT Stewardship ensures that spending on IT-related projects aligns with the strategic goals of the university. This is accomplished through a committee structure that accounts for projects across the university at various budget, complexity, and risk levels.
Committee Structure and Focus Areas
Executive oversight of portfolios and investment in University-wide IT strategy
University information and protecting data integrity and confidentiality
University operations and business services
Teaching, learning, and student academic experience
Research Technology (future)
Technology that enables research activities
Information security standards and best practices
Maintenance, Upgrades, and Renewal (MUR), service delivery, enhancements, and customer care for currently committed services
The University Council for Academic Technologies considers policies, practices, and procedures related to University computing and information services. The Council provides a forum for collaboration between faculty, students, and the OIT to identify new applications of technology that will enhance teaching, learning, and research.
Why is IT Stewardship important for Notre Dame?
Campus-wide coordination helps to create a strategic technology roadmap that aligns IT investments with the University aspirations
Cyber security is consistently supported by clear standards, policies, or escalation thresholds, reducing threats to Notre Dame's data and reputation.
IT work is prioritized strategically, resulting in transparent priorities for the community and improved customer service.
Increased visibility and planning reduce duplicate efforts and improve interoperability of systems and data.
Clear priorities, visible priorities, and consolidated funding ensure that finite technical resources are assigned or acquired to meet priorities.
