University IT Strategic Planning

The information below provides a framework for developing information technology strategies and initiatives throughout the University of Illinois.

Strategic Planning Framework

This document is a framework for developing information technology strategies and initiatives throughout the University of Illinois and was designed to be part of the IT governance strategic IT planning process. This framework provides a means to work collaboratively to develop our IT goals, objectives, initiatives, associated metrics, and ongoing modifications to the framework.

Each of the campuses utilized this framework in the development of their own campus IT strategic plans. This campus process was driven by the respective campus IT governance groups which are composed of faculty, staff, students, and IT professionals. The goal of this process was to produce IT strategic plans that demonstrate how shared information technology can support the strategic goals of the University.
