SO IT Council

The Systems Offices Information Technology Council (SO IT Council) fosters collaboration and cooperation throughout the University of Illinois System and leverages System IT services to better serve both the U of I System and its three universities. The SO IT Council assists in identifying shared priorities for IT within the U of I System and seeks opportunities for cost savings or avoidance. The SO IT Council provides governance to recommend System IT policy, creates common System IT procedures, and provides input to System committees, such as the Information Technology Leadership Team (ITLT).
