Communication: In order for the ITAC to complete its mission, there must be full, two-way communication between the UCCS community and the ITAC. The ITAC needs any information pertaining to IT so that it can strategically plan and the UCCS community needs to know the recommendations of the ITAC as well. The Director of IT, the Senior Faculty Associate for IT and the VCAA are responsible for insuring that this communication takes place.

Meetings: The meetings are open to the campus. Each meeting shall include a discussion about the previous minutes as well as an open discussion period to consider IT events and issues across the campus. The minutes of each meeting will be sent via email to all members of the ITAC, the Chancellor, all Vice Chancellors, Deans, and Student Co-Executives. All pertinent documents, including the ITAC minutes, will be posted to the ITAC website.
