Strategic initiatives are formed around agreed-upon key issues facing the university community. These initiatives are chaired or co-chaired by CIO Council members, receive facilitation support, and benefit from direct participation within the council. Strategic initiatives should result in technology strategies, policy, practices, and directions that impact the university community broadly.
The Storage Strategy initiative is a three year effort, begun in fall 2020, to find ways to concentrate Stanford's IT resources to provision a finite set of storage solutions that meet the enterprise's diverse needs, while balancing for usability, interoperability, cost-efficiency, and value.

Improving the Student Technology Support Experience
This initiative aims to minimize the time, effort, and energy students spend getting support for technology services so they can focus on learning, research, and teaching. Do this by creating a cross-organization, collaborative program to improve the student technology support experience so that students connect quickly and seamlessly to the help they need.
