Mission Statement

The Associate Vice Chancellor for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer holds the senior campus leadership position responsible for developing an institutional focus on information technologies that advance the mission and strategic goals of UC Santa Barbara. The Chief Information Officer provides oversight for all IT activities that contribute to planning, creating, and implementing a campus-wide IT vision, and for integrating them into UCSB's strategic plan.

Responsible for the design, development, release, and maintenance of enterprise technology systems and enterprise services, the CIO accomplishes these goals by collaborating and coordinating with IT units and organizations on campus; working and consulting with IT governance structures, executive and academic leaders as well as with faculty, staff and students; driving innovation and differentiated IT strategy; and improving the business services associated with IT.
