Vision Statement

The Information Technology Council (ITC) of the University of Michigan envisions a future for the University in which:

  • Members of the community have the freedom to choose from an array of tools and devices that are supported by a common infrastructure.
  • Strive to provide ubiquitous access to resources, learning experiences, and colleagues at the University and beyond to meet the rising expectations of access to everything from anywhere.
  • Collaboration—supporting knowledge sharing, education, and research—is seamless and independent of time, location, unit, level, or institution.
  • Technology enables new directions and business models (e.g., lifelong and life-wide learning) that extend globally and beyond institutional boundaries.
  • Computing infrastructure and services are integrated across the core missions of the university.
  • Computing infrastructure and services are built to support innovation, flexibility, efficiency, effective use of data, and functional completeness.
  • Provide education, community support and resources to allow individuals to use technology to do amazing things.


  • Develop vision and strategic direction for shared information and communication technologies for entire university
  • Review and prioritize projects that align with U-M IT strategy
  • Individual members are responsible for representing and communicating with their constituencies
