  • Ensure that large information technology initiatives are aligned with the University's mission and strategies;
  • Prioritize large proposals for new technology services and/or major enhancements/changes to existing services by anticipating University-wide impacts, dependencies, and available resources;
  • Review and recommend information technology policies, procedures, and standards that have campus-wide impact; and
  • Guide Coastal Carolina University in innovation and technological services, creating valuable experiences for students, faculty and staff.

The UTC meets five times annually; additional meetings may be scheduled as needed.
