In fall of 2017, SSU established a university-wide IT Advisory Group in response to an IT assessment that was conducted under the leadership of the Provost.
The purpose of the group is to provide an advisory governance structure to help IT align with campus priorities. The group is advisory to the cabinet, via the Provost, in helping set IT priorities for the institution.
