Information Technology Discussion Document

As part of NUIT’s ongoing commitment to engage with the larger IT community at Northwestern, we have crafted a discussion paper as we look ahead to the next fiscal year.

This paper is an overarching discussion document to share NUIT’s perspectives at this stage—on the information technology (IT) environment that influences us, on what we’ve heard through our partnerships within the community, and on the directions we’re setting as result of these two—so we can continue to foster conversations within, and be aligned with, the larger community at Northwestern.  

Our hope is that this document will help to cultivate the important conversations that can move us forward together in the coming year.
