Overview & Events

One IT CalendarIn conjunction with the IT Leaders Program alumni at UC Berkeley, the CIO is sponsoring the One IT initiative, a coordinated program of activities to help build IT community, allow IT partners across campus to engage with one another, and improve IT services coordination. We kicked this program off in March 2014 and have had several wonderful events often co-sponsored with a different IT partner.

Critical to the success of many of our projects is building a better sense of community, collaboration, and partnership across campus holding the belief that it’s in our collective self-interest to work more closely together to efficiently meet the needs of UC Berkeley students, faculty and staff. The One IT initiative expresses the vision of building community, engaging with partners across campus, and improving IT services.

The goal of this monthly event is to bring the One IT community together on a regular basis to share information, hear an informal update from CIO Jenn Stringer, participate in Q&A, learn about the progress being made on priorities outlined in our strategic plan, and hopefully have some fun and learn from each other. These meetings will be held on the second Thursday of the month. We will collect questions ahead of time and also through chat during the meeting.

One IT Celebration: A Picnic on the Glade
Thursday, July 14, 2022 | 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Over 200 staff members and retirees came out to celebrate. This picnic was a big “thank you” for everyone’s hard work and dedication as we’ve stayed flexible and agile to support campus through the pandemic. Seeing colleagues again who have retired since Dec. 2019 was really heartwarming and a great reunion to finally get to come together and pay tribute to their many contributions to UC Berkeley.
