IT@UofT Strategic Plan (archive)
The Information Technology Services (ITS) division, under the leadership of Chief Information Officer (CIO) Bo Wandschneider, has now completed a year-long strategic planning process.
The University of Toronto’s IT@UofT strategic plan will focus and guide our efforts to support the University’s academic mission through information technology services, informing the vision, framework and initiatives, both within ITS and across the University for the next five years. Additionally, the strategic plan, directed by guiding principles, will provide a clear picture of and lead our IT investments in a rapidly evolving environment. In effect, this plan will shape IT@UofT.
The plan has been created with the input of all staff within ITS and key stakeholders from the broader University of Toronto community, under the guidance of a highly engaged steering committee.
The IT@UofT strategic plan, informed by guiding principles, includes:
A shared vision informed by our five core values.
Our broad goals to address emergent needs.
Priorities and achievement targets for the next three years.

Community Consultation Process
Input of staff, partners and stakeholders has been critical to the development of the plan. Meetings and focus groups took place over an eight month period to gather valuable community feedback. The full process including milestones is outlined below.
During the consultation process, 670 IT staff, faculty students and administrators participated in our community consultation as part of the IT@UofT strategic plan process and actively participated in creating the vision.
The University of Toronto IT@UofT strategic plan steering committee met each term to provide guidance and recommendations from an institutional perspective.
