ITLP Forward

Nomination – ITLP selection review committee

ITLP Forward supports the cohort selection review committee for IT Leadership programs. The ITLP Nomination Team Coordinator, a member of the Forward steering committee, chairs the selection committee. The selection committee evaluates program candidates based on the quality of their nominations and the quality of their candidate responses. The review committee provides cohort recommendations to the CIO for approval and communicates the selection status to all nominees.

Participation – Current ITLP cohort success

ITLP Forward works to ensure that the current ITLP cohorts have a successful experience before, during, and after the program.

Engagement – ITLP alumni engagement

ITLP Forward maintains the list of UW–‍Madison ITLP alumni and participates in co-sponsored events to provide ongoing networking and engagement opportunities. ITLP alumni come from schools, colleges, and divisions across campus. Alumni are encouraged to share their expertise and experience with the current cohorts.

“The ITLP program helped me with a framework of what leaders do. It helped me redevelop my relationships into something that I can use to make my work better and make my workplace better.”

Sara Nagreen – 2017 ITLP Graduate
