The Campus IT Policy Workshop was held July 18-19. View the presentation slides:

Policy challenges that require collaboration among campus IT staff and their non-IT counterparts are increasingly common:

  • Why can’t we use data from transcripts for alumni fundraisers?
  • Why is it a bad idea to publish student tweets on our student recruitment website?
  • Why can’t IT staff enforce copyright compliance by excluding violators from the campus network?

The Campus IT Policy Workshop is a hands-on learning experience for campus IT staff who find themselves engaging with policies that go beyond IT, and their non-IT counterparts whose work depends on IT.

You'll learn from seasoned practitioners using case studies and hands-on activities focused on the importance of campus policy and how it impacts on IT services. This workshop teaches:

  • The differences between policy, procedures, best practices, and guidelines, and when a policy is necessary.
  • How compliance overlaps with policy, and what to do in absence of compliance requirement.
  • How to approach issues from a policy process perspective.
  • The basic steps involved in developing IT policy, including working with others on campus.

Key takeaway: The workshop will guide you through the development of a campus policy plan that you can immediately put into practice when you return from the workshop.
