This case study explores how the University of Cincinnati has developed a governance structure that allows the IT organization to align priorities and function as a cohesive element across the institution. Governance includes participation from all major university constituencies, including members of the president's cabinet. Four working committees represent academic, administrative, and infrastructure IT issues, and an executive IT steering committee ensures the structure's validity and stature. The University of Cincinnati has also developed a sustainable governance process for prioritizing and funding enterprise level campus IT investments in a highly decentralized research university environment.
