MAIS efforts (projects, partnerships, and initiatives) are primarily focused around these strategic priorities:
Minimize administrative burdens placed on our faculty
Enhance academic units’ ability to connect with individual students
Maintain and increase the excellence of our staff
Streamline and improve research administration
Streamline and improve the fundraising process
Maintain excellence while optimizing the size of our academic programs and use of facilities
Enhance administrative processes through efficiency gains and resource sharing
Protect informational assets and privacy
Promote green solutions through automation
These strategic priorities were identified and defined largely on the basis of interviews with University Deans and their leadership regarding the challenges they face and their plans for the future. Every fiscal year, MAIS aligns its efforts with these priorities to support the University’s mission.
MAIS will focus its efforts around eResearch, DART, Business Intelligence and Space Initiative in 2009. (Find out why these projects are so important to the University) You can keep a pulse on these strategic projects through the Project InfoCenter. As these projects are completed, or as new priorities are shaped by University Leadership, MAIS will continue to use the Project InfoCenter to keep you up to date.
