About the Office of the CIO

The Office of the CIO provides the vision and leadership in information technology necessary to advance the university's mission and strategic plan.

The mission of the CIO is to offer direction and support for the effective application and integration of information technology to improve the teaching, learning, research, and administrative environment of the university.

The CIO reports to the university executive vice president and provost, and oversees UA Information Security and University Information Technology Services (org charts).

The ability to provide advanced information technology remains a critical factor for the UA in achieving its teaching, research, and public service mission—to discover, educate, serve, and inspire. Expanded IT capability will provide the avenue to strengthen the University’s academic excellence, intellectual creativity, and spirit of community, even in these difficult economic times. The Office of the CIO is committed to leveraging technology to advance and support the UA mission and goals.
