Overview & Events

In 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 each 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.
