Technology Enterprise Advisory Committee (TEAC)


The committee is charged with reviewing ISU's enterprise technologies, integrating existing software platforms, and communicating relevant enterprise items to our campus community. The committee reports to the IT Executive Committee (ITEC) that consists of the Senior Vice Presidents and the Chief of Staff for the President.

The formation of the TEAC is particularly important given the numerous high-level and visible security breaches that have occurred at universities and corporate entities across the country. The TEAC has an important role in keeping ISU vigilant and proactive in protecting the private information of our students, faculty, staff, and research partners.

The TEAC charge includes overcoming limitations in our enterprise information systems which make it difficult to obtain data that is relevant for decision-making and make basic transactions time consuming.

The TEAC's charge is consistent with the educational, research, and outreach mission of a leading land grant university. A holistic approach to information technology governance and integration benefits our growing enrollment, recruitment of faculty and staff, and growing research enterprise. Strong organizations invest in technology to improve efficiency and effectiveness, which ultimately enables our faculty and staff to concentrate on what we do best – teach, conduct research, and serve our fellow Iowans.


The TEAC was established by President Steven Leath and announced in a June 17, 2015, memorandum to ISU administrative officers. He appointed the chair, initial officers and support staff to the committee, with the expectation that the subcommittees will meet on a regular basis and provide advice to the TEAC on actions that require enterprise level consideration by ITEC and the Office of the President.

The Senior Vice Presidents and the Chief of Staff will collaborate to create subcommittees that address the integration of functional areas and to provide recommendations to the TEAC. The initial subcommittees will provide advice and expertise in the following areas:

• The student enterprises, addressing the full life cycle of a student from initial contact as an applicant through graduation;

• Human resource management with functional administrative requirements to serve as an advisory capacity for all aspects of the employee experience; and

• Research and financial management that supports the research and educational pursuits of the University.
