Various interdepartmental committees and groups provide input regarding technology offerings at the Texas A&M University Health Science Center.
Texas A&M Division of IT Governance (ITG)
IT Governance provides assurance that Information Technology aligns with the outcomes required by Texas A&M University for successful fulfillment of its mission. It ensures that appropriate decision-making activities (prioritization and funding) are done in concert with the university’s strategic priorities, while taking into account input from a broad base of students, faculty and staff from across the university. Health Science Center staff and faculty participate in the IT Governance program through several committees.
