Increasingly, IT is being challenged to align its goals and services to the mission and goals of the academic and business units throughout the institution. This challenge should be seen as an opportunity to reach across institutional silos to build relationships between IT and other departments. In this session, participants will hear the good, the bad, and the ugly of the partnerships forged between IT and functional departments on campus. The session will include real-world examples of these partnerships from three different types of institutions: a community college, a small private college, and an R1. Participants will learn how these relationships have been forged, the successes of these partnerships, and the challenges of aligning the goals and services of IT with those of a variety of departments across campus.
