Strategic programs are led by CIO Council members, with recurring projects and priorities that receive facilitation support, and results in technology strategies, policies, practices and directions that impact the university community broadly. The CIO Council receives an annual report and serves as the steering committee for these programs; the council also approves a rolling three-year roadmap with associated measurement and review.
Campus IT Plan
The CIO Council sponsored the development of the first Campus IT Plan in 2018. The plan provides a collective view of the technology improvement efforts currently in progress to support the Stanford community. It includes individual technology plans of Stanford’s seven schools, SLAC, and the major academic and administrative support organizations. The individual plans align to a set of common strategic areas identified by key university stakeholders.
