- Cybersecurity to the Edge
A message from Lois Brooks, vice provost for information technology and chief information officer:
As UW–Madison emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Division of Information Technology turned toward the future and what that might bring to the world of technology. Working with our information technology (IT) partners across the university, we developed a community ethos to guide our intentions and considered opportunities for investment and shared progress that will best serve the university’s goals.
The resulting 5 IT Strategic Priorities will be our focus over the next few years and form the bedrock on which we build a stronger and more vibrant university for many more years to come.
The 5 priorities are:
Ensure a vibrant, inclusive, exceptional workforce of IT professionals to provide the technology enterprise of the university.
Advance research computing and data science to accelerate the pace of research and innovation.
- Learner Success
Enable educational innovation and learner success; support university priorities for data-empowered education and online degrees.
- Administrative Transformation
Support and champion the Administrative Transformation Program (ATP): A priority goal of the university and the Universities of Wisconsin to move to Workday and Research Administration Modernization Project (RAMP) and to modernize ancillary and support systems.
Ensure a cybersecure university.
Each of the 5 IT Strategic Priorities for 2022-2025 are distinct on their own. But when we link them together, we create a clear path forward for innovation, inclusion, security and success.
I recognize that we’ve been making wonderful progress in these areas, but there is still much more work to be done. We know that people tend to perform at their best when they feel that they are in a safe, supportive space. They are more willing to take intellectual risks and dig deeper into topics of interest. Our work in IT is imperative to making everyone at this university feel seen and safe—and able to do their very best.
Along with our campus partners, we will bring these priorities to the forefront of our work and ensure that the University of Wisconsin–Madison remains the educational, research and outreach beacon we know it to be.
