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.
