Ohio University

IT Advisory Communities continue through the summer

Advisory communities are an important part of the University's IT Governance framework. They provide a means to engage with OIT and influence decisions based on the needs and experiences of participants and, most importantly, to inspire action to meet those needs. Advisory communities will influence service roadmaps and help inform future investments.

Anyone at the University can participate. No prior experience or technical expertise is required. The only qualifications are an interest in the topic and a willingness to share ideas and listen to the ideas of others. 

The following Advisory Community meetings are occurring in the month of June.
