CSU IT Strategic Plan

We are excited to announce the launch of Colorado State University’s inaugural campus-wide IT strategic plan. This plan provides direction for our campus community for the next 3 years. Guided by the framework of the Courageous Strategic Transformation (CST), the IT strategic plan intends to strengthen the partnerships that exist today between central and distributed IT units and work toward advancing a shared set of strategic goals. 

Our strategic planning process was intentionally designed to be collaborative, enabling key stakeholders from across the colleges and divisions to identify and prioritize those goals that have been established across four strategic areas that are critical to the ongoing evolution of IT at CSU. Those strategic areas include:  Student Success, IT Security, IT Governance, and Operational Excellence. 

The IT Strategy and Planning Department in the Division of IT will be leading those efforts necessary to operationalize the IT Strategic Plan. Designated co-sponsors have been assigned and will serve as the visible champions responsible for the strategic priorities and will also provide direction, guidance, and support to those individuals leading the work. The co-sponsors will meet monthly with their respective project teams, determine what resources are needed, and provide quarterly updates, enabling the CSU community to keep informed of their progress.
