Mission

The mission of OIT is to plan for and provide high quality information technology resources in support of research and teaching across all campuses, and to facilitate the efficient execution of administrative and public service functions of the University.

OIT is headed by an Associate Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Jason Ball, who reports to Strategic Planning and Information Technology. In addition to providing FAU vital general computing and telecommunications services, OIT serves as a consultant and coordinator for more specific information technology activities and projects carried on by the various University colleges, departments, administrative offices, and research groups. Each unit is assisted in accomplishing its own goals, and at the same time OIT ensures that overall institutional goals are being met.
