Results Achieved to Date

  • ExpectedResults: Our main accomplishments to date are identifying the right group of individuals to bring together, developing a culture of collaboration and communication among that group, and creating a college policy on acceptable use of college networks and computer systems. Future work will focus on IPAS, further policy creation and communication, and identifying opportunities for collaboration and/or centralization where either policy or financial considerations make it logical. Our progress will be measured by the number of times individuals find benefit in working together across organizational lines.
