A strong governance model is key to the success of OIT at Eastern Washington University. The following governance structure will serve all aspects of the organizational needs of OIT at EWU:
Institutional Information Technology Governance Structure
There is a faculty technology advisory committee (the Academic Systems Advisory Committee) and a student technology advisory and action group (the Student Technology Advisory Committee) both of which provide opportunities to faculty, staff and students to help identify institutional technology needs and wants.
The Academic Systems Advisory Committee (ASAC) advises the Office of Information Technology (OIT) and Academic Affairs (AA) on the standards, guidelines, policies, and planning that supports the use of technological resources to enhance the quality of teaching and learning, research, and other scholarly activities; develop and review academic technology; advise on priorities for academic technology initiatives; provide a forum for investigation and advises on new teaching and learning technologies; and facilitates communications regarding academic teaching and learning initiatives.
The student group (STAC) working in conjunction with the Associated Students of Eastern Washington University (EWU's student government), hosts an open solicitation for student technology proposals and engages students and campus service providers (labs, student bookstore, etc.) in conversations regarding current and future technology needs of EWU students.
The Data Management Committee (DMC) and Digital Media Advisory Committee (DMAC) provide the primary venues for planning and input from constituencies regarding administrative technology. The DMC is chaired by the CIO and comprised of EWU's data custodians, and the Director of Institutional Research and Demographic Assessment. DMC recommends, establishes, implements, and enforces standards and strategies for use of institutional data and reporting.
The DMAC is co-chaired by the CIO and the Vice President for Advancement and its membership is drawn from a broad representation of the EWU community. The DMAC is charged with developing web strategy and policy and communicating these to the university community. Furthermore, their authority shall encompass all websites that deliver content related to EWU, regardless of where or how they are published or hosted.
