UTC is continuing its implementation of our Ellucian contract, and it is my pleasure to provide the campus with an update.
During March of this year, we completed a needs assessment with our IT staff aimed at identifying opportunities for improvement as the university continues to strive for excellence within our IT operation. The immediate next steps are:
- Dennis Gendron is UTC’s CIO, and all IT concerns should be directed to Dr. Gendron. Dr. Gendron is a direct report to me.
- Dean Theresa Liedtka has replaced Ron Baker as the campus Contract Administrator and chair of the IT Governance Committee.
- We are reviewing the organization and effectiveness of the IT Governance Committee. Chair Dean Liedtka and Vice-chair Matt Matthews will lead this effort.
- Monthly town hall meetings will be held with the IT staff to help ensure correct information is disseminated to all, that transparency is maintained, and that open lines of communication are encouraged and respected.
Our university is on a journey to excellence. Achieving that excellence requires UTC to have the most effective and efficient IT operation possible. We are committed to achieving that, and I welcome any feedback you may have.
