The IT Summit program will be comprised of session tracks on relevant and thought-provoking topics to engage attendees and spur new ideas or ways of thinking about IT trends and applications. Sessions will be comprised of UA IT professionals presenting on current projects, initiatives, services or applications. In addition, this year there will also be subject matters experts from industry presenting on a range of IT topics as they relate to higher education. The event will be an ideal opportunity for UA IT professionals to understand and learn more about IT projects occuring on campus and potentially form collaborative partnerships for future initiatives.
