ITS is launching a new IT Student Advisory Committee (ITSAC) to provide a forum for students to share their ideas and priorities, and discuss current and upcoming IT initiatives with ITS.
Bo Wandschneider, CIO, said “I am thrilled we have this off the ground. At the previous two universities I was at, we had a student advisory committee and the students were really engaged and helped us set direction and provide better services. Hearing directly from students in this type of forum is so valuable.”
Meetings are held during both the fall and winter terms between ITS and student representatives.
Students on the committee represent a variety of faculties and student groups:
The ITSAC committee includes U of T Staff from ITS, Libraries, and Office of the Vice-Provost, Students:
The ITS Student Advisory Committee is actively looking for more student representatives from student organizations. If you’re interested in joining us, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Committee Chair, Margaret Bura, said “It’s an exciting opportunity to be involved in ITSAC committee. Students need a forum to share their ideas on how we can make the IT experience at U of T better for them. Our first committee meeting on November 22, 2017, provided a good preview of which IT services to focus on, including what works and what we can do better. I’m looking forward to future meetings!”
