Unit Representatives

The Unit Representative group brings together individuals from campus organizations with ITS project leaders to prepare units, and the university as a whole, for new IT services.

Charge

As a group, the Unit Representatives will look ahead to important organizational and transition issues associated with new IT services. We will take on a shared responsibility in these areas:

Communication

  • Provide input and review on the IT projects' key messages
  • Bring our administration, HR, and IT staff members into the conversation
  • Collect feedback from our constituents
  • Serve as a voice of our unit, within the Unit Representative group
  • Serve as a voice of the IT projects, within our unit

Supporting Constituents

  • Assess impacts to our constituents; within the UR group build a shared understanding of those impacts
  • Anticipate points of friction with the coming changes and recommend approaches
  • Support events aimed at smoothing the transitions

Unit Readiness

  • Take shared responsibility for unit readiness
  • Identify a Unit Readiness Coordinator for each of our units
  • Collaborate with our Unit Readiness Coordinators to carry out readiness activities
  • Provide input on go/no-go decisions for our units
