IT Governance at NC State

IT governance is the framework of processes and structures specifying who makes decisions, how decisions are implemented, who is held responsible, and more!

A redesigned IT governance structure launched in the fall 2019 as one of the initiatives of the university IT Strategic Plan, with the goal to make it more efficient and better differentiate the work of operational and advisory groups and the governance-related structure.

The current IT governance structure consists of the following:

University IT Strategic Plan

NC State IT leadership created “Digital Enablement: Powering the NC State Mission” to reflect and support Wolfpack 2030: Powering the Extraordinary, the university’s strategic plan. It provides a blueprint to lead IT innovation.

From student success to global engagement, information technology and the IT community need to directly support the university’s goals and its mission to unite its strength in science and technology with a commitment to excellence.

IT Rules, Regulations and Procedures

NC State’s computer resources are owned by the university and are provided primarily to support its academic and administrative functions.

The use of these resources is governed by federal and state law as well as university policies and procedures, primarily by the Computer Use Regulation.
