Information Technology (IT) is a Division of UNC General Administration and has a straightforward mission: IT will seek and employ every possible improvement in efficiency and effectiveness of information technology for its constituent campuses. The improvements in efficiencies and effectiveness will be pursued by:
- Creating system-wide vendor contracts for IT software, hardware, and services to employ the critical mass of UNC purchasing power to obtain the best prices, terms, and conditions possible.
- Encouraging cooperative and collaborative initiatives among its constituent institutions to develop less expensive and/or higher quality IT services than individual institutions could offer. These collaborative efforts will include the availability of central technical support staff and hosting of IT services.
- Extending this cooperative and collaborative environment to all of North Carolina’s educational entities (Community Colleges and the Department of Public Instruction) to offer the citizens of NC the best K-20 education, at the lowest possible cost, with the highest achievable ease of transition between institutions.
IT is pursuing a system-wide IT strategy to ensure the University makes the best use of technologies for teaching, learning, research and administration. The division recognizes that collaboration among the campuses is the best way to address common interests, and identify ways to complement - not replace - the IT services already provided by constituent institutions.
