Projects

A project is defined as a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product or service that has a defined start and end date. 

The Project Management Office utilizes a formal in-take process to ensure project requests are reviewed in a timely, efficient and strategic manner.

If you have an IT project need, please fill out our request form (login required).  Submissions are reviewed weekly and are prioritized from a defined set of criteria.  If the project is deemed to be a large, campus-wide initiative, we partner with University Vice Presidents and President to review and rank the requests to ensure alignment to the Universities priorities.  

Below are the larger IT projects which have been approved by the University Leaders.
