IT governance overview

IT governance at the University of Utah is intended to find collaborative solutions for IT issues affecting the University of Utah and its ability to fulfill its mission. The IT governance process was revised in 2016 to bring together a representative campus constituency chosen by academic and administrative leadership and to streamline the committee process.

  • The IT Architecture and New Technology Committee (ANTC) is entrusted with hearing IT issues and makes recommendations that affect IT architecture and architecture standards, IT common services, and the adoption and implementation of new technologies. Its recommendations go to the SITC. Both the SITC and ANTC may create ad hoc committees to address specific issues of strategic importance.
  • The Strategic Information Technology Committee (SITC) was formed to raise, hear, and discuss IT issues that affect significant portions of the University community or cross multiple areas of oversight. Its recommendations go to the University’s executive leadership team for a final decision.
  • The University Enterprise Web Advisory Council (EWAC) is an ad-hoc committee entrusted with raising, hearing and discussing issues that affect University web properties, its online ecosystem, and web visitors.
  • The University Geographical Information Services (UGIS) subcommittee is an ad-hoc committee convened by the ANTC.
  • The University Teaching and Learning Portfolio (TLP) focuses on technology to support teaching and learning across campus.
