IT Vision@2015

Cal State Northridge engaged in a collaborative campus process in 2010-2011 to create IT Vision@2015, a campus digital master plan. Much like the campus physical master plan establishes a blueprint for the future look of the physical campus, the IT Vision@2015 establishes a five-year vision for information technology.

The IT Vision@2015 final report was completed in September 2011; it will guide annual university technology project planning and priority setting.

To help provide a graphical representation of the IT Vision@2015, one-page Roadmaps have been generated for each of the four themes. The roadmaps will be reviewed and updated annually as part of the University planning process.

To help the University realize the goals documented in the IT Vision@2015 report, information technology Guiding Principles were developed to guide the proper balance between cost containment, efficiency, excellent service, flexibility, and innovation.
