IT Governance represents the Villanova leadership and community in IT decision making. Its role is to ensure that investments in IT are aligned with the University strategy. IT Governance is comprised of the following:
University Council on Information Technology (UCIT)
UCIT serves as the decision making body for major IT projects and policies. UCIT evaluates, recommends and approves IT strategies, projects, and policies that support the educational processes, receives input from College IT committees, and advises Vice President of Academic Affairs on Instructional Technology.
UCIT will approve University-wide policies as they relate to the implementation and utilization of information technology resources and consult with Legal Counsel and the President's cabinet where necessary. The Council will formally review the strategic technological directions of the University and approve adjustments to directions as needed.
