One Community, Many Neighbourhoods
CCS – or Computing and Communications Services – has always held an integral role on campus, as it oversees the email, telephony and computing networks systems.
It is no longer enough for CCS to merely provide and sustain a robust, comprehensive and dependable IT infrastructure, though that is indeed an imperative. Today, CCS must be an active and collaborative partner in the campus community, providing solutions and efficiencies that support and advance the strategic priorities of the University as a whole.
The Chief Information Officer has a responsibility to foster open and meaningful dialogue with all levels of the university community – from senior administrators to associate VP’s, researchers, faculty, staff and students. We must fully understand not only today’s needs, but the needs of tomorrow and be ready to facilitate and support the core work of the University.
