Information Technology Advisory Council

About ITAC

Duke’s Information Technology Advisory Council (ITAC) supports the academic mission of the university by promoting the appropriate and effective use of information technology.

ITAC advises Duke’s IT leadership on issues related to computing, telecommunications, enterprise and academic software, and other information technology, and recommends policies, guidelines and practices for IT at Duke. According to its charter, ITAC also reviews the status of information technology at Duke and reports periodically to the Duke community on our progress toward goals and objectives.

The committee’s members include faculty, students, and administrators, with guest speakers and other participants invited to attend as appropriate. ITAC members are appointed by other university bodies, including the Executive Committee of the Academic Council, undergraduate and graduate student government, deans responsible for technology decisions and department heads.

ITAC regularly publishes its meeting minutes, which provide detailed accounts of IT directions, accomplishments and challenges at Duke.
