OneIT at UM

The OneIT initiative is a six-month strategic planning process that seeks to design integrated IT services that align with UM's strategic vision and meet the following challenges set forth by President Sheila Stearns:

  • Maintain and ideally enhance services to faculty, staff, and students
  • Achieve efficiencies and cost savings in the deployment of software, hardware, and personnel
  • Improve cross-training and professional development for IT personnel across campus
  • Ensure that the FTE delivering IT services can flex efficiently and appropriately according to student enrollment, faculty and staff served, research requirements, campus infrastructure size and characteristics, and inevitable expansion of support for online courses, programs and administrative services

In short, the goal of OneIT is to design and deliver better IT services more efficiently.
