ITS Consultative Structure

ITS seeks to align all of its services to support the academic and enabling administrative activities of the University.  ITS staff are encouraged to bring forward suggestions for improvement based on their daily interactions with students, faculty and staff.  Additionally, ITS seeks to consult regularly with groups who reflect the range of our service community, to better understand their evolving needs and to inform them of new services as they are developed.

The following chart shows the groups with which ITS schedules regular contact, and identifies the appropriate liaison person within ITS leadership team.  If you see an opportunity to better inform our program of services through communication with other groups, please contact Tamara Adizes, Portfolio Communications Officer.
