Michigan IT Strategic Planning Report
In 2012, U-M CIO Laura Patterson charged a team of university leaders to engage the IT community for the purpose of defining a strategic vision with an emphasis on mission-aligned services. This led the publication of a planning report incorporating more than 380 recommendations from the IT community, and Michigan IT's inclusion in the IT Strategic Plan.
