It was wonderful to see so many of you at the ReIT Open Seminar last week! If you were unable to attend, we’ve provided a summary of the seminar and the presentation slide deck below along with other highlights and announcements in our ReIT digest for May:
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.
The Financial Aid and Scholarship team partnered with Cal Answers to create a new subject area, Student Financial Aid, to accommodate data from both the Student Information Systems (SIS) and the legacy system ProSAM. 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.
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.
Save the date for the next UC IT Town Hall – June 6 at 10:00 a.m. The featured speaker will be Professor Kyle Lewis, chair and professor of Technology Management at UC Santa Barbara. Her research examines how organizations leverage individual and collective knowledge. She examines the performance of teams, especially those teams engaged in knowledge work such as professional services, new product development, and project-based tasks.
It’s three months and counting until UCCSC!
Sending a final reminder for the ReIT Open Seminar tomorrow featuring a presentation by Dean Lyons.
UC Berkeley’s Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology, whose world-class collections range from Egyptian mummy sarcophagi to Peruvian textiles to Native American baskets, has opened a digital portal to expand public access to its collections of more than 3 million objects, photographs, films and sound recordings.
How computers see is the through-line running from Lazar Supic’s Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering at the University of Belgrade, to his UC Berkeley PhD in Nuclear Engineering, to his current work as a Postdoc in UC Berkeley’s DeepDrive Industry Consortium (BDD). His work has taken a path that began with computer vision in robots, moved to gamma-ray tracking in atomic reactions, and now focuses on machine learning for automotive perception.
We’re back with another 2850 Telegraph move update for you!
To our campus community,
As many of you know, recruiting for a new campus Chief Information Security Officer has been a challenging effort.

Effective immediately, Jeremy is our new CISO.
Hi IST (and RTL)!
