OIT began revising our strategic plan last year in support of the University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus mission as a diverse teaching and learning community that creates, discovers, researches, and applies knowledge to improve the health and well-being of Colorado and the world. The strategic planning team facilitated cross-campus input sessions and workshops with our constituent partners - a process that was essential to creating technology services and solutions essential to university success. This collaborative process resulted in the strategic directions you will see in each campus' one-page executive summary.
The participatory data-gathering workshops and brainstorming sessions helped determine and prioritize a strategic focus, allowing OIT to delve deeper into what being the primary strategic business partner looks like over the next few years. The goals and objectives created from the OIT strategic plan are being aligned with existing campus-specific guiding principles set forth by both chancellors. And as we work to improve alignment and connection between members of OIT and the university community, this plan will outline OIT's short- and long-term goals; allowing us to be forward thinking in identifying practical steps for embracing the transformation of information technology for faculty, staff and students.
