The CIO Council is comprised of the senior-most technical leaders from Stanford schools and units.

The Council is co-chaired. The Stanford CIO serves as a permanent co-chair. The other co-chair is a standing member from a school or unit outside of University IT, and serves a one-year rotational term. The rotating co-chair is selected annually through a nomination process.
