UChicago IT

UChicago IT is an IT Services-led initiative, in collaboration with unit and divisional IT to support the mission of the Institution.

UChicago IT is built on the four interrelated initiatives below. Please take time to fully explore each.

IT Rationalization

IT groups across the institution are collaborating to identify opportunities to increase our efficiency and improve overall service offerings to deliver even greater value.

IT Leadership Council

IT doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It takes time, dedication, and insight from talented professionals and leaders across the organization. The ITLC will become a focal point for advancing IT at UChicago.

IT Academy

People are our greatest investment. The UChicago IT Academy will be established to support training and professional development, nurture emerging IT leaders, and create IT career paths at UChicago.

IT Connects

IT is about community as much as it is about technology. IT Connects is designed to help strengthen that community, highlight new opportunities to engage and collaborate, and inspire innovative thought.
