Information Technology Committee


The Faculty Senate created the Integrated Technology Committee (ITC) in the 1996-1997 academic year. It replaces two previous Faculty Senate committees: the Academic Computer Usage Committee and the Audio Visual Committee. It works with the Student Technology Fee Advisory group (which is an administrative committee) and the Campus IT Advisory Group.
