OIT Faculty Advisory Committee

Introduction

The Office of Information Technology (OIT) manages critical campus resources on behalf of the UCI faculty and the extended university community. An effective advisory mechanism is essential to ensure OIT operates in harmony with overall campus goals.

Currently, OIT receives advice and input using a variety of informal and formal mechanisms, including the Academic Senior Managers (ASMs), School IT Directors, the Computing Support Coordinators (CSC), and the Computing Lab Coordinators (CLC). The official Academic Senate advisory mechanism is the Council on Research, Computing and Library Resources (CoRCLR), where the Chief Information Officer (CIO) participates as an ex-officio member.
