Purpose [top]

Responsibility for Information Technology (IT) Governance at CSU Channel Islands is delegated by the President to the Vice President for Information Technology Services (VP/ITS). The Information Technology Policy & Planning Committee (ITPPC) supports IT governance for CSU Channel Islands by serving as the formal campus-wide advisory committee to the VP/ITS.

Background [top]

The ITPPC was established in 2009 as a university-wide committee, with oversight from the President’s office. In 2014, the President authorized individual VP’s to organize and oversee committees in their area, and the authority for the ITPPC passed to the VP/ITS.
