Office of the CIO

What We Do

This office supports the Vice President for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer (CIO), who develops and implements strategies to ensure that ITS is providing central technology support across both the academic and administrative operations of the University, and provides day-to-day leadership and administration of the Information Technology Services (ITS) department. The CIO provides leadership and acts as a catalyst for unifying the various information technology visions across campus into one, and is the main consensus builder in coordinating technology acquisition and deployment at Syracuse University.

The Office of the CIO consists of the Executive Office, responsible for ITS leadership, strategic direction and operations; the Business Office, responsible for ITS financial management, administration and planning, software licensing, and ITS human resources and organizational development; and ITS Administration, which manages review of all SU information technology related contracts, liases with University legal counsel on technology issues, handles special projects, and is responsible for the planning, development, and implementation of communications and outreach in support of the programs and services delivered by ITS.
