IT Strategic Priorities 2022-2025

A message from Lois Brooks, vice provost for information technology and chief information officer

UW–Madison is one of the top public universities in the nation, renowned for its quality and achievements in education, research and outreach to the communities of Wisconsin. The role of information technology—essential in the 21st century—is to support the continued growth and excellence of the university.

It is essential that IT resources and services are aligned with the academic mission and properly funded and supported to ensure they meet the university’s needs. University resources are shared across schools, colleges and divisions, each contributing to the success of the institution by delivering a unique part of the mission. Hence, we must strive for good stewardship of information technology in order to ensure that university resources are used in the best possible way.

These strategic priorities are designed to provide a strong, enabling foundation for the university to innovate and achieve its goals, to manage risk, and to foster good stewardship of resources.
