IT Partners at the University

CUIT works closely with other Information Technology groups across the University that serve more localized needs for their schools and departments.

For your reference, a list of IT websites from around the University is posted at right. Please be sure to visit your respective page if you do not use CUIT for your primary IT support.

To enable alignment of IT across the University, ITLC (Information Technology Leadership Council) meetings are held with IT leaders representing 33 colleges, schools, institutes and departments at Columbia. Bi-monthly meetings are held to discuss strategy and direction for University-wide projects and initiatives. Council members join working groups that meet to plan and discuss resources for relevant initiatives. Please ask your IT leader if you'd like to be involved.

The ITLC has seven executive sponsors that prioritize initiatives. They are:

  • Gaspare LoDuca – CUIT
  • Frantz Merine – Law School
  • Donald Lemma – Business School
  • Tom Chow – SEAS
  • Robert Sideli – CUMC
  • Jai Kasturi – Arts & Sciences
  • Robert Cartolano – Libraries

The ITSC (Information Technology Security Council) also meets bi-monthly throughout the academic year, with a similar structure but instead focusing specifically on IT security.
