About ACIS

ACIS works with Library and Technology Services (LTS) and other campus committees to develop policies relating to various information technologies and services. See for more information about this committee.

Current members of ACIS include Professors Scott Gordon, College of Arts and Science; Thomas Hammond, College of Education; David Zhang, College of Business and Economics; Denise Blew, Office of Finance and Administration; Steven Wilson and Allen Taylor, Office of the Registrar; Henry Zheng, Office of Institutional Research and Strategic Analytics; Timothy Foley, Chief Technology Officer (ex-officio); and Bruce M. Taggart (ex-officio), Vice Provost for Library and Technology Services.

How policies are developed

The process for policy development begins with ACIS receiving drafts of policy issues from various LTS Advisory Committees (see LTS Governance). The draft policies are reviewed by ACIS and refined collaboratively with LTS before being circulated to the campus for an open comment period. After the campus comment period, the ACIS Committee considers all campus input and a final draft policy is forwarded to the Provost for review and approval. Once approved, the policy is posted to the LTS web site on the “About” page.
