In addition to Information Technology Services (ITS) staff, members of the campus community are involved through formal committees and working groups that offer various levels of information, advice, prioritization and decision making for technology related projects. Below is a description of those committees and working groups and their current membership.

  • Banner Liaisons
  • Tech Guild
  • IT and Library Faculty Committee (ITaL)
  • Information Security Task Force (ISTF)

Banner Liaisons

Banner Liaisons are a main point of contact between administrative departments and ITS as it relates to Banner and related software, systems, and policies or procedures. In addition, this group serves as functional support consultants to their department coordinating Banner related training and testing.

Tech Guild

Tech Guild members include those faculty and staff who have responsibilities relating to computer technology in academic departments. Regular meetings of the Guild allow communication between ITS and the departments concerning new initiatives and ongoing issues relating to academic labs and faculty computer use.

IT and Library Faculty Committee (ITaL)

From section 5.4.3.11.1 of the Faculty Handbook:

The responsibilities of this Committee are to:

a. make recommendations to the Faculty, the administration, and the Vice President and Chief Information Officer about information technology resources, services, policy, and planning.

b. make recommendations to the Faculty, the administration, and the Dean of Libraries about library resources, services, policy, and planning.

Information Security Task Force (ISTF)

The task force members will share and discuss the default technical security posture in their respective areas of expertise, develop a common understanding of information security and risk management, and collaborate on information security initiatives as appropriate. The task force will also provide the basis for a Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT). The CSIRT would be augmented with other colleagues and business/academic partners on an as needed basis depending on the nature of the incident.
