Infrastructure and Architecture Council Members

The IT Infrastructure Domain Committee is led by a chair and a facilitator. The chair provides leadership by prioritizing discussions, and identifying the need for subcommittees and task forces. The functional work of the group is managed by the facilitator (setting up meetings and distributing information). Agendas are jointly developed and managed by the chair and the facilitator.

 Meetings are facilitated by the Senior IT Director of ITS Enterprise Infrastructure. A chair will be chosen bi-annually from the membership. Membership will include representatives from ITS, Healthcare Information Systems, Collegiate IT, Administrative IT, and other representatives with a strong connection to campus IT Infrastructure. In general, members will serve three-year terms and new members will be nominated through consultation with the committee and OneIT Leaders.

 Subcommittees or ad hoc task forces may be created and charged by council membership to study and advise on specific questions or recommendations.
