Office of the CIO
The Office of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) is all about collaboration, communication and open dialogue. In order for the University’s Information Systems, Resources and Technology to meet your needs, we must share a vision. Our office encourages open dialogue. Tell us what’s working and what’s not working. Suggest new innovations. Tell us how we can serve you better.
Together, we will architect an integrated system that supports, enhances and enriches the University of Guelph's mission in teaching, learning, research and service.
The Chief Information Officer (CIO), as the enterprise information architect, is responsible for the overall strategy and policy administration of the University’s information technology, information services and information resources/ The CIO reports to the Provost and Vice President (Academic).
Information Technology was once considered a purely functional resource. Today, to be truly effective, IT must evolve into a strategic asset that is fully aligned and integrated with the University’s mission, strategic goals and objectives. It must be an agent of transformational change.
The University’s Integrated Plan focuses heavily on the word “integrated” and the many connotations it evokes including collaboration, systematic frameworks and enhanced inter-disciplinary communication. It is the mandate of the Chief Information Officer to provide the vision, leadership and advocacy for the development and use of information Systems, Resources and Technologies to facilitate these objectives.
It is in this spirit of collaboration and integration that the Office of the CIO has overall responsibility and accountability for the administration of both the Library, as Chief Librarian, and Computing and Communications Services (CCS). This Office is the front door to a vast world of information and expertise.
