IT Strategic Partners

Members of the IT Leadership Team take an active part in supporting the development of strategic initiatives, working closely with constituent parts of the University; owning the strategic relationship, helping to shape our future and providing a senior escalation point where needed.

There is an IT Strategic Partner aligned to each of the core University areas, as well as the three University governance groups.
