Information technology governance at UW-Madison relies on the input of several groups:

  • Campus Technical Issues Group (CTIG) – A volunteer group that provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of technology issues of interest to Madison campus divisional and departmental IT staff and other concerned partners in the Madison IT process; to explore the intersection of campus policy and technology issues; and to provide other technology-related activities as it deems appropriate to meet the needs of campus IT staff.
  • Information Technology Committee (ITC) – The faculty advisory body for policy and planning for information technology throughout the University.
  • Madison Technical Advisory Group (MTAG) – Provides advice and consultation to the UW-Madison CIO Office regarding technical and implementation issues that may have an effect on the department and division IT units.
  • Network Advisory Group (NAG) – An informal gathering of campus partners who share their ideas and concerns regarding campus network management.
  • Student Advisory Committee – DoIT coordinates an advisory group of 30 students. They meet monthly during the school year to provide advice and feedback on a variety of technology-related topics. For more information, contact the Committee coordinator.
  • Transforming Teaching & Learning Through Technology Faculty Advisory Group – Description and website coming soon.
  • Tech Partners – A forum of more than 800 UW-Madison computing professionals who discuss campus computing and technology issues online. Discussions cover a variety of topics including opinions about hardware and software, how-to questions, requests for resources, and the good and bad aspects of new technologies.
