Seeking comprehensive input from faculty, staff and students, IT Council members are engaging in discussion sessions and feedback opportunities with campus academic and administrative units.

Focusing on the Mission Domains of Teaching and Learning, Knowledge, Research, and Patient Care, the IT Council has been working with the Office of the CIO on setting campus-wide information technology priorities and framing the IT strategic planning endeavor.

Many campus leaders have contributed to the development of this shared vision for IT and computing at Michigan. The goal has been to integrate the university's IT strategic approach with the strategic direction of the institution's global mission.

In 2013, the IT Executive Committee and the IT Council reviewed and endorsed the university's first IT Strategic Plan. An updated version of the plan, the 2016 IT Strategic Plan (U-M login required), is now available. Faculty, staff and students are welcome to share comments, suggestions and questions by sending an email to
