Strategic Plan

Welcome to Information Management and Technology's (IM&T) Strategic Technology Plan for the University of Northern Colorado. This plan serves as a roadmap for IM&T's future, outlining our goals and objectives for the next three years. It results from a collaborative effort involving input from diverse stakeholders, including students, faculty, and staff. 

The plan is grounded in our institution's mission and values and is aligned with UNC's Rowing, Not Drifting 2030 strategic plan. It also considers the rapidly changing landscape of higher education, including diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), technological advancements, and economic challenges. 

Our strategic plan focuses on four main areas: Communication & Customer Service, Innovation & Technology Experience, Cybersecurity & Compliance, and Infrastructure & Cloud Strategy. Each of these areas includes key actions and tactics for achieving them.
