Strategic Planning

OIT began revising our strategic plan in 2019 to support the University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus missions and visions. This dedicated effort was necessary as our campuses will fundamentally benefit from OIT having a well-defined strategic plan, guided by campus-level principles and input. OIT serves to advance the university mission by providing innovative technology services and solutions to the University of Colorado Denver and Anschutz Medical Campus, our constituents and partners.

Determining “why we do the things we do” helps focus OIT on our mission, vision, and principles in ways that will engage our customers and benefit students. The strategic planning committee, lead by OIT’s Planning, Strategy, and Analysis (PSA) 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. In support of these strategic directions, during 2021, OIT will focus on: 

  • portfolio management to better prioritize projects as well as technical and financial resources and
  • supporting a hybrid campus for remote and on-campus learning and working
