Information Technology at Queen’s is not just about technology. It also embraces information management, services and resources. A metaphor, "one community with many neighbourhoods", represents a simple yet powerful philosophy. At Queen’s, we have a federated approach to IT Governance that blends the enterprise (community) and distributed (neighbourhoods) models. This structure allows us to respect the diversity present in academic pursuit yet capture the efficiencies associated with the enterprise.
IT is an enabler that is integrated into the campus-wide decision-making process. We are going through a time of transformation where our IT environment has the potential to significantly enhance our academic and research goals by placing a focus on teaching and learning, scholarship and research, and student life.
Our biggest asset within the IT enterprise at Queen’s is our people. We have a strong team of engaged individuals who are passionate about higher education. The diversity of skills is significant and truly impressive. These individuals are being increasingly asked to be the bridge between the business of the institution and information technology to allow for more efficient and effective decision-making and improved provision of services to the community.
