Ten teams from across the University of California won the 2020 Larry L. Sautter Award for technology innovations that make university operations more effective and efficient and better serve faculty, staff, students and patients. Interim Chief Information Officer Mark Cianca announced the winners yesterday (August 11, 2020) at the UC Tech Virtual Webinar hosted by UCLA.
The annual award, which is sponsored by the UC Information Technology Leadership Council, recognizes collaborative innovations in IT that advance the university’s missions of teaching, research, public service and patient care, or that improve the effectiveness of university processes. The award encourages collaboration and solution sharing across the UC system. To be eligible, projects must be active and operational at a campus.
Our own Digital Learning Services team in Research, Teaching and Learning received a Sautter Award Honorable Mention for their work on Berkeley Online Advising (BOA). BOA is a platform for academic advisors that unifies student data from multiple campus services, and provides advisors with new tools to access information that supports student success.
