IT Governance Infrastructure Advisory Committee
The IT Infrastructure Advisory Committee, is an IT Governance advisory committee chaired by a non-NUIT technology leader. It provides oversight and sets priorities for information technology infrastructure at Northwestern.
The committee reviews policies and provides direction to ensure that the security and reliability of enterprise level systems is maintained for all University services and makes recommendations to the IT Governance Executive Committee.
A non-Northwestern IT technology leader serves as chair. The representatives for the University schools and business units on the committee are appointed by a dean or vice president for a two-year term. The chair may appoint ad hoc committees as appropriate.
