The University of Wisconsin-Stout Information Technology Strategic Plan is the synthesis of a collaboration between the campus community and the Learning and Information Technology Department. An effective IT strategic plan accounts for the unique character of an institution, say a Polytechnic institution, and applies the constructs of governance, industry-knowledge, and best-practices to support and empower the goals of the institution. Here at Stout, Information Technology is a critical component in how we support our faculty, students, and staff on and off campus. As IT works collaboratively with the campus community to understand the challenges that face our faculty, staff, and students, we will work to produce high quality services designed to meet and exceed the expectations of the campus community.
The 2019 IT Strategic Plan will help guide the focus of information technology over the next 3-5 years at UW-Stout. It is our intent that IT initiatives in this plan align with campus wide strategic planning and that they are impactful in teaching our students, supporting our faculty and improving business processes moving forward.
