Nearly 350 campus IT professionals gathered at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Student Union on Thursday, June 7 for the annual One IT Summit. The theme Inspiring Collaboration and Innovation was woven throughout the day’s program and activities. There were also ample opportunities for information technology staff to network, share their work, engage with campus IT leadership, and learn about new technology in the Exhibit Hall and Sponsor Showcase.

Dear Colleagues,

In celebration of Staff Appreciation Week, I want to extend a note of gratitude for all the hard work and dedication each of you bring to our IST/OCIO team. We are fortunate to have an extraordinary number of talented people who are an integral part of our One IT community. We appreciate your efforts in providing excellent customer service, meeting the needs of our campus partners, and playing a key role in the initiatives that are vital to the success of IT and UC Berkeley.

The June 6 UC IT Town Hall was a must-watch event! Dr. Kyle Lewis, professor of Technology Management at UC Santa Barbara, spoke on the traits of effective teams and how to become a successful teammate.

Hi everyone,

Once again, sharing what we know in another 2850 move update.

The first meeting of the Move Committee will be held 6/11.  The list of committee members is below, and includes a representative from each department.  Please reach out to your representative with any important concerns or specific ideas prior to the 6/11 meeting.

During the school year it’s easy to get wrapped up in the day-to-day, and become so busy keeping up with work and homelife, that we don’t always make time for ourselves to grow personally or professionally. That’s why I am encouraging you, my UC Berkeley colleagues, to take some time to learn something new this summer.

How often do you say, “This drives me crazy! Someone should fix it.”? Hey, how about you?

Dear Colleagues,

To ensure that the University of California Board of Regents is able to exercise the necessary oversight for the university's significant IT projects, all University locations are required per Regents Policy 5103 to provide a status update to the Regents three times per calendar year for IT projects with an estimated or actual cumulative cost of $5 million or more.

We moved the existing Cal Answers Student Financial Aid and Student Affordabilitydashboards (previously found under the subject area Student Financials) into the new subject area.

UC IT Blog

May 17, 2018, is Global Accessibility Awareness Day or “GAAD,” as they say.

What does that mean? Well, walk for a minute in someone else’s shoes – particularly someone who is disabled and has to use assistive technology to surf the web, watch a video, or complete an online form.

When you do that, you’ll understand why IT needs to be designed to be accessible to the people who use assistive technologies like screen readers.
