IITS Teams and Committees

IITS Teams and Committees

Information and instructional technology services cross unit boundaries and require the planning and coordination of people from multiple units. IITS teams and committees have been created to address this situation. Their purpose is to:

  • collaboratively support services in their area of specialization
  • to foster communication across units
  • to insure that services are not being duplicated

The IITS Teams and Committees include:
