Formation of OIT
The Office of Information Technology (OIT), created Nov. 1, 2007, brought together the staff, operations and responsibilities of NC State’s two central IT organizations — Resource Management and Information Systems (RMIS) and the Information Technology Division (ITD).
While much has changed as a result of this consolidation, OIT staff remain committed to providing the best possible IT systems and services for the students, faculty and staff of NC State.
The formation of the OIT was a major step in NC State’s initiative to reorganize the university’s IT operations under the leadership of a chief information officer. The Chancellor created a new position as part of this initiative, and after a national search, Dr. Marc I. Hoit was named Vice Chancellor for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer on Sept. 1, 2008. For more details, see:
