The Office of the CIO’s (OCIO) primary purpose is to develop a shared vision for IT programs, priorities, and investments that advance the Washington University mission, support operations and enable the university to continue to excel in its increasingly competitive landscape. To realize this vision, the OCIO works with academic, clinical, research, administrative and IT leaders across the institution to develop a strategy that will better leverage our current investment in information technology and ensure that future investments help the institution, schools and departments, clinical departments, and our faculty and students achieve their objectives.

To that end, the OCIO manages IT projects to advance IT and university strategies. Through IT governance, the OCIO and representatives from across the university identify key technology initiatives that leverage the university’s IT investment to develop and deliver the services that support the overall strategy.
