20-21 C13 Information Technology Committee

FUNCTION: To recommend to the president, the chief information officer, and the Faculty Council changes in policies regarding information technology; to consult with and advise the chief information officer about policies and procedures pertaining to information technology at the University.

COMPOSITION: Fifteen (15) voting faculty members of the General Faculty, thirteen (13) of which will serve three (3) year staggered terms. In addition, every year the chair of the Faculty Council shall appoint two (2) voting faculty members of the Faculty Council for one (1) year terms. Eight (8) of the faculty members will be from colleges/schools participating in the Information Technology Leadership Council (ITLC) and will rotate among the colleges and schools that participate in ITLC. The remaining five (5) faculty members will be selected through the regular procedures of the Committee on Committees (see HOP 2-1040 section B), giving priority to colleges and schools not in ITLC. The Committee on Committees will submit all faculty recommendations/nominations, including the IT panel, to the president for appointment. There will be four (4) staff members appointed for two (2) year staggered terms. At least two (2) of the staff member representatives shall not be employed in IT- related areas. The Chair of ITLC will be a non-voting member of C-13. The president shall appoint three (3) student members for one (1) year terms, one from each panel of two (2) names submitted by Student Government, the Senate of College Councils, and the Graduate Student Assembly. Each fall, the committee shall elect a chair elect who shall be a voting faculty member of the committee, though, if that proves impossible, it shall elect a vice chair as an interim measure, while continuing to seek a chair elect. Each committee shall make an annual report on its work, in writing, to the General Faculty and Faculty Council. The chief information officer or a representative from the central information technology group shall serve as ex officio member without vote. A staff member of UT Libraries shall also serve as ex-officio member without vote. A representative from each of the following shall be selected by the president to serve as an administrative advisor without vote: the Faculty Innovation Center (FIC), Financial and Administrative Services, and department chairs. If the above processes did not produce a member who belongs to both C-13 Information Technology Committee and C-14 Technology-Enhanced Education Oversight Committee, the Committee on Committees shall appoint the Chair or a member of C-14 as an ex-officio member of C-13.
