The Information Technology Advisory Board (ITAB) is a visionary, planning, working, and advisory board to the ITS Executive Board. ITAB is also an affiliated committee to the University Senate.


ITAB assists in strategic technology planning and provides guidance for technology utilization at the University.


ITAB standing members represent areas that must be consistently part of the strategic planning process.

ITAB appointed members represent students, faculty, and staff and are appointed for three-year staggered terms. Membership is reviewed annually by the ITS Executive Board.

It is the responsibility of each member to represent institutional stakeholders and to solicit and share information with those stakeholders.

Steering committees are standing sub-committees of ITAB, and are chaired by standing ITAB members.

Task Forces or Project Teams are formulated as necessary to provide evaluation or implementation services. Steering Committees and ITAB meet on at least a monthly basis.
