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, significant changes to existing services, and retirement of key services.

Charge

As a group, the Unit Representatives will look ahead to important organizational and transition issues associated with new and retiring 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 as needed
  • Collect feedback from our constituents
  • Serve as a voice of our unit, within the Unit Representative group
  • Cascade information about the IT projects within our unit

Supporting Constituents

  • Assess impacts to our constituents; within the Unit Representatives group build a shared understanding of those impacts
  • Anticipate points of friction with the coming changes and recommend approaches; communicate those to project teams and Customer Relations team
  • Support efforts aimed at smoothing the transitions

Unit Readiness

  • Take shared responsibility for unit readiness
  • Identify Unit Ambassadors from our units for projects, as requested by ITS
  • Collaborate with our Unit Ambassadors to carry out readiness activities throughout our units
  • Provide input on timing of service changes for our units

Members

As ITS provides a wide variety of services that impact many roles within each unit, membership in this group should include administrative leaders as well as IT leaders.
