Information Technology Advisory Board (ITAB)

Over the past few years, OIT has engaged the university’s executive leadership in defining critical and core areas of focus for IT transformation and to build infrastructure that supports UC Merced’s growing information technology needs.

Looking forward to 2018, OIT is forming the Information Technology Advisory Board (ITAB) with the goal of aligning the implementation of priorities, projects, and services at an operational level. ITAB draws leadership from across campus to engage in education and discussion about the future of IT at UC Merced.
