Chief Information Officer's Council


The CIO Council advises the State Board of Higher Education, chancellor and campus presidents on key strategic information technology initiatives, priorities, policies and procedures. The council makes recommendations on information technologies, including electronic communications networks and systems, computing systems, administrative information systems, academic information systems and other information technology activities, and evaluates alignment of resources with those recommendations.

Council members include the University System CIO and campus presidential appointees who represent - at a policy level - the information technology interests of their respective institutions. The council meets about nine times each year.
