Additionally, the committee will ensure that the campus IT strategic goals and efforts are aligned with the university G2G strategic plan and goals.

On October 13, 2016, the Office of Information Technology conducted an IT Strategic Planning retreat moderated by Mr. Amir Dabirian, Vice President for Information Technology and CIO for California State University, Fullerton. Amir delivered a keynote presentation that discussed IT Trends, higher education IT priorities, and provided examples of what is possible if the campus puts its resources and efforts into developing a transformational IT environment that enables efficiencies, synergies, and innovation.
As a result of the IT Strategic Planning retreat, we now have a preliminary list of University IT Strategic Goals aligned with G2G. The preliminary goals and strategies selected have broad institutional impacts and have buy-in from the campus constituents who attended the IT Planning Retreat. I will endeavor over the next 4 weeks to finalize these strategic goals and distribute the plan to the campus community.
The following categories are what the campus selected as the 5-year UOG IT Strategic Goals:
A list of proposed objectives for the above goals can be found in the two-page “Draft Information Technology Strategic Goals 2016-2020”.
