ITS Strategic Plan

ITS Strategic Plan Cover image

On July 3, 2018, the Information Technology Services (ITS) division, under the leadership of Bo Wandschneider, chief information officer (CIO) launched the ITS strategic planning process.

The development of the University of Toronto’s ITS strategic plan will focus and guide our efforts to support the university’s academic mission through information technology services. It will inform the vision, goals and objectives both within ITS and across the university for the next three years. Additionally, the strategic plan will provide a clear picture of and guide our IT investments in a rapidly evolving environment.

The plan is being created with the input of all staff within ITS and key stakeholders from the broader University of Toronto community. The process will be supported by Meghan Kirwin, a facilitator with The Kirwin Group.

The ITS strategic plan will include:
