Committee Graphic

The IRC -- unofficially now known as the INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY COUNCIL (ITC) -- is currently undergoing a reorganization, see the May 20, 2008 minutes for more information.**

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

VOTING MEMBERS PRESENT:   JOEL ARREDONDO, WARREN BURGGREN, (CHAIR), JIM BYFORD, CENGIZ CAPAN, TIM CHRISTIAN, KEVIN EADES, NOREEN GOGGIN, DON GROSE, ELIZABETH HINKLE-TURNER, TROY JOHNSON, FRANCES MAY, WILLIAM MOEN, RAMU MUTHIAH, JON NELSON,   PATRICK PLUSCHT, RENEE SIMS FOR JOEY SAXON, AND WILL SENN NON-VOTING MEMBERS PRESENT:  JOE ADAMO, PHILIP BACZEWSKI MAURICE LEATHERBURY, JACKIE THAMES, SUSAN RICHROATH, AND CHARLOTTE RUSSELL MEMBERS ABSENT: JUDITH ADKISON, LOU ANN BRADLEY, JIM CURRY, RENEE DRABIER, YUNFEI  DU, JANE HIMMEL, JOHN HOOPER,  BRUCE HUNTER, MELISSA JACKSON, ABRAHAM JOHN, JOHN PRICE, PHILLIP TURNER, KELLY DONAHUE-WALLACE AND KISEOL YANG

Warren Burggren introduced Susan Richroath as the new secretary for the ITC. Sue Ellen Richey decided to relinquish her ITC duties after many dedicated years of service to the Council. 

The minutes of the previous ITC meeting, December 2, 2008, were approved with no recommended corrections.

IT planning

John Hooper was absent so Maurice Leatherbury reported on the IT planning for the separate identity of UNT-Dallas.  The Dallas campus will reach the 1,000 full-time equivalent student enrollment requirement to become a separate institution by fall 2010.  All IT units need to be set up as separate systems for reporting and collecting of each institution’s data.  CITC has funded a new position to support PeopleSoft and RFP’s have been issued to consult with this project.

Decision Support Group

Warren Burggren introduced Allen Clark, Assistant Vice President for Institutional Research, to explain the Decision Support Group.  Allen Clark and Jean Bush chair the Decision Support Group which has a charge to develop data dashboards for use by the Chancellor, President, Provost, and at college and departmental levels. Prior to EIS, data were collected in the Fact Book at the end of the year.  Currently, the EIS system allows a data warehouse which electronically creates a factbook.   The creation of a dashboard (similar concept to the dashboard of an automobile) will increase the collection of data with broader and deeper representation.  The dashboard mechanism will be available in 3-6 months.  Allen Clark will be invited to return to the ITC to provide a dashboard example and update in a few months.

Student EagleConnect™ migration

Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner provided an update on the student EagleConnect™ migration.  February 3 is the official launch date.  There have been orientation sessions for resident hall and network managers and general access computer lab employees.  There will be tutorials and giveaways to encourage students to begin using EagleConnect™.

Next meeting

The next ITC meeting will be February 17, 2009.  To allow all members to interact around the table, the Council voted to move the location of the meetings to the General Academic Building, Suite 210 conference room. 

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 2:45 pm.
