Ensure that the Principles of Excellence are supported by outstanding information technology and information resources.
- Pervasive deployment of IT. Ensure information technology is pervasively deployed at IU by leveraging and continuing the support of the university’s long-standing and internationally recognized excellence in information technology services and infrastructure.
- IU libraries. Ensure that IU’s libraries provide access to information in all forms that comprises the record of human knowledge, thought, and creativity for the learning, scholarly, and research communities at IU.
The many and ever-evolving forms of information technology present a continuing opportunity to enhance the work of the university. Pervasive connectivity of devices, sensors, and interactive surfaces—all driven by ever-faster networks—present many opportunities to rethink how students learn and faculty collaborate for research, scholarship, and artistic expression. Access to data, information, knowledge, and real-time streams of activity are already unprecedented in human history. These trends will accelerate, providing new frontiers for discovery and insight. Likewise, these trends enable efficiency in university services and can provide insight for better forecasting in a changing world.
