Computing Planning & Policies
Governance and Planning
Information technology governance may be viewed as a three-tier hierarchy consisting of strategies, policies, and operations.
A comprehensive strategic plan for information technology is developed every five years. The 2009-2014 strategic planning process is currently underway.
Policies governing the use of Reed's technology resources are developed by the Computing Policy Committee (CPC). The purpose of these policies is to help ensure that students, faculty, staff, and other members of the Reed community have maximum access to computers and network services and are aware of the rights and responsibilities associated with computer usage.
The Web Coordinating Committee (WCC) handles operational issues related to the reed.edu domain. Examples of concerns that the WCC manages include proposed structural and navigational changes to the Reed website, issues related to marketing on the website, and the integration of social media or other evolving forms of web-based communication. When policy changes or questions arise that are beyond the scope of the WCC, the committee will pass those to the Computing Policy Committee for discussion, decision, or direction.
