Information and Technology Strategic Plan

The Information and Technology Strategic Plan, currently in draft form, for fiscal years 2012/13 – 2017/18 identifies an ambitious yet mindful set of high level goals to be accomplished during the next five years.  It is an outcome of numerous conversations with students, faculty and staff in an effort to align information and technology efforts with the goals and planning activities of the campus community.

This plan focuses on extending and enhancing the information and technology foundation already in place at CSU, Chico while also delivering new solutions to meet the ever increasing demands of the community and the changing technology landscape.  As the campus continues to face increased financial pressure, we view technology as an enabler to empower the campus to realize its vision, mission, and strategic priorities.

We are grateful to our campus partners and key stakeholders for their dedicated efforts to add to this plan.  Our next steps, to be completed by June 2013, include further definition of our IT initiatives, proposed tactical objectives and action plans, as well as a detailed vetting of these plans with the campus community.
