UA IT Council

The University Administration Information Technology Council (UA IT Council) fosters collaboration and cooperation throughout UA and leverages UA IT services to better serve both UA and the University campuses. The UA IT Council assists in identifying shared priorities for IT within UA and seeks opportunities for cost savings or avoidance. The UA IT Council provides governance to recommend UA IT policy, creates common UA IT procedures, and provides input to University committees, such as the Information Technology Leadership Team (ITLT).
