At the request of the Colorado Commission on Higher Education, CU
Boulder has engaged in a campus-wide IT strategic planning process
every four years since 1998. These plans have laid the foundation
for many important IT resources and practices. Examples include:
1998: Establishment of the faculty computer purchase program, formation of the Distributed Academic Technology Coordinators (DATCs), creation of the 4-tiered IT support model, formation of the CIO Office and IT Council.
2002: Development of the student and faculty/staff portal, maturation of IT infrastructure (i.e. Enterprise Directory, enterprise architecture), creation of the student IT literacy/fluency effort, launch of the IT Security Office, formation of IT Infrastructure Advisory Group (ITIAG).
2006: Coordination of email environment (Exchange for faculty/staff,
external email provider for students), new network funding model,
campus-wide MS site licensing, maturation of security environment with
departmental IT risk assessments and disaster recovery/business
