Develop IT advisory and communication channels to ensure the continued involvement of the LSU community in the implementation of the flagship IT strategy and ongoing day-today provision of IT services to the campus.
The campus community must be involved—as a full-fledged partner with both authority and responsibilities—in the development and implementation of IT strategies and service directions taken at LSU. Essentially, the Flagship IT Strategy planning process must evolve a long-term role for the task forces, to facilitate ongoing input from the community, as well as a venue to help communicate IT directions more broadly on campus.
