Policies

Computer and Network Use Policies are set by President’s Council. Most other I&TS policies are of an operational nature and are set & managed by I&TS Leadership Council or the service area directors. Development of a new IT/IS policy framework, including thorough review of existing computer and network use polices, is in process. For more details, contact Frank Moore at its@plu.edu.

Governance

I&TS strives continuously to align its services and resources with university needs. Determination of these needs is achieved in a variety of ways, beginning with close work with constituents and governance partners.

President’s Council

The Provost, through whom I&TS reports, is a member of President’s Council. Annual I&TS initiatives and a rolling 18-month plan (refreshed semi-annually) are submitted to the Provost and reviewed by President’s Council, the AIE Group (below), the Instructional Resources Committee, and other constituent bodies.

Instructional Resources Committee (IRC)

The IRC is the principal faculty committee concerned with I&TS operations. Membership includes students and key administrators in addition to faculty. The committee’s charge can be found in the Faculty Handbook, p. 57.

Administrative Information Environment (AIE) Group

  • The AIE Group, which includes campus executive leadership, provides overall direction for administrative information systems (e.g., Banner) that reside largely in I&TS Information Systems. The AIE Group administers the AIE Plan, a multi-year program for the AIE.
  • AIE Group Charge
  • AIE Plan & Related Documents

Data Administrators Task Force (DATF)

DATF is the leading constituent (user) group for such administrative information systems as Banner. DATF meets weekly, communicates frequently, and, while administratively independent, works closely with I&TS Information Systems.
