DIVISION OF THE CHIEF Information OFFICER
Annual Report Fiscal Year 2022
Message from the CIO
In fiscal year 2021-22, the University of Arizona, like the rest of the world, began to emerge from the pandemic. While successfully bringing students and faculty back to campus for in-person instruction, the University also surpassed enrollment goals and recruited one of the most diverse incoming classes of students in our history. Technology continued to be critically important to sustain new norms and expectations for hybrid teaching, learning and working.
In addition to keeping pace with demand for enterprise IT services across the institution, we continued work on key initiatives that support the University’s strategic goals and made significant progress on several long-term, multi-phase goals. The CIO Division developed a set of new secure IT services for campus units to meet Arizona Auditor General IT security requirements. The softphone project to replace our aging telephony infrastructure began rolling out to campus and the University financials modernization project advanced with a solution selected.
Several new services launched. The CatCloud portal gives students personalized, relevant information in one place for an improved digital experience. In continuing support of Research we have rolled out major cloud hosted services, eDisclosure and eIRB, that allow campus researchers to better manage disclosure and human subject protocols. Arizona is a diverse state. The University of Arizona is a diverse institution. A new institutional diversity dashboard provides the community access to demographic data at a glance. We also marked a milestone by celebrating the tenth anniversary of our annual IT Summit devoted to IT community collaboration, learning and professional growth.
This Annual Report captures just some of the extraordinary work accomplished by the CIO Division and its partners over the past year. You can read about these accomplishments and more in this report, which is also available online at annualreport.it.arizona.edu. Thank you for your continued support of IT at UArizona as we look to build on our successes in FY23 and beyond.
