As outlined in a new overview, OneIT is transitioning from a collection of efficiency projects to operating as a unified IT organization. In a series of retreats, IT leaders from each campus unit developed a shared vision with plans and goals in four areas: GovernanceOrganizational StructureCulture, and People (how we recruit, retain, and  cultivate IT talent). These organizational goals are designed to create a more cohesive, easy experience for IT customers, enable us to maximize the impact of IT investment and better meet the needs of interdisciplinary activities, and allow us to learn from each other.
