Faculty Senate Academic Support Committee Report
One of the driving forces for the forthcoming strategic plan is: “RAPIDLY EVOLVING INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY WILL MANDATE TECH SUPPORT AND EDUCATION TO OFFER ON-LINE COURSES AND REMAIN COMPETIVE.”
The Strategic Planning and Resources Council has conducted two university-wide forums to collect input on IT. The minutes of the two forums are available on the SPARC site on Blackboard (use your email login to access).
A team of 5 information system auditors from the North Carolina Auditors Office began an audit of DoIT on November 6, 2006. The last IS audit was conducted in 2001-2002. Actually, the audit team began requesting information through a series of questionnaires in mid-October.
Several staff members from UNCP attended the UNC Cause conference in New Bern. UNC Cause is traditionally focused on topics of interest to the UNC IT community.
