IT Summit 2015

On October 13, 2015, the Office of the Chief Information Officer hosted the second Information Technology (IT) Summit at the University of Arizona for campus IT professionals. Event highlights included opening remarks from University of Vincent del Casino, an inspiring keynote speech by Thornton May, various informative breakout sessions, an interactive poster session, and much more.

For many of the 500 information technology professionals that attended the UA IT Summit, it was their first opportunity to formally connect with their peers from other colleges and departments, exchange ideas, discuss IT trends, and share best practices.
