Michigan IT Professional Development

The Office of the VPIT-CIO sponsors professional development activities to develop high-demand skills, promote common frameworks and terminology, and nurture the working relationships among IT staff across the university.

Stay tuned to the Michigan IT Newsletter for future announcements about this next program and how to communicate interest and/or recommend staff. Please direct any questions or comments to the Michigan IT steering committee.

Skill & Professional Development

The Michigan IT steering committee is planning new, on-campus skill & professional development options for U-M IT staff to:

  • Expand their connections and view of Michigan IT to be larger than their unit so that we can further build and sustain meaningful collaboration across units and central IT
  • Develop technical and management skills   
  • Build trust and a common language within the Michigan IT community.

IT Leadership Program

Approximately 150 IT leaders across U-M participated in off- and on-campus IT Leadership Programs to strengthen the working relationship between IT staff across the university and develop the individual skills of IT leaders. The nine-month programs included workshops, applied learning assignments, and opportunities for personal development including professional and peer coaching.
