Portfolio & Project Management

The Project Management Office is available to assist you with reviewing and implementing the technology you’re considering. Please start by submitting a Technology Opportunity Request (TOR). Your submission will be routed to your Executive Director for approval, prioritized in relation to other R&DE IT projects, and reviewed by IT Governance at which time you will be contacted to discuss next steps.


Enterprise Applications

This team monitors technology trends and evaluates how R&DE can take advantage of new and emerging technologies to improve the student experience and staff productivity.

Information Security & Privacy

The Information Security Office protects the organization’s data and ensures compliance while improving the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information systems and encouraging stakeholder engagement, accountability, and awareness with cybersecurity and privacy initiatives. This team regularly monitors vulnerabilities and threats, performs audits of systems for security and compliance, conducts security and privacy assessments for new products, and continually reviews our security posture.

Enterprise Infrastructure

The Enterprise Infrastructure team provides reliable and secure server / storage environments while aiming to deliver a positive end-user experience. This team interfaces with vendors, campus university partners, and business owners to ensure new and existing systems are kept secured, updated, and accessible.
