IT strategic plan
Updated April, 2011
The mission of the Information Technology unit (IT) is to provide leadership in identifying and supporting the information technology infrastructure required to support the broader strategic and tactical plans of The University of Montana - Missoula, the four campuses of the multi-campus University of Montana, and the Montana University System.
In pursuit of its mission, IT will identify UMM/IT strategic directions designed to fulfill its mission and which also align UM and UMM with IT strategic directions set for the MUS.

Network Connectivity: continue development of networking to provide capabilities to link all campuses together, to link campuses to other state, regional, and national networks, and to extend services to areas of Montana that do not host a MUS campus.
