MAIS Spotlight

U-M is transforming information technology services by combining ITCS, ITSS, and MAIS. Laura Patterson will assume leadership of the new organization, effective April 20, 2009.

Reorganizing to support U
In a recent URecord Update, Provost Teresa Sullivan said:

"To remain competitive, we need to respond to the rapidly changing advances in technology, learning and science. A unified and more strategic IT approach will give our students, faculty and staff the structure and scale they need to learn in today’s world, innovate, and discover breakthroughs in science.”
