Monthly IT Centralization Brown Bag Series to launch March 17

Information technology professionals from across campus, as well as other interested members of the university community, are invited to attend a monthly brown bag series starting March 17 from noon to 1 p.m. in Nord Hall, Room 400. Michael Kubit, deputy chief information officer, will host the series to give attendees an update on the effort to centralize IT at Case Western Reserve and answer any and all questions participants might have.

Case Western Reserve is undergoing an effort to centralize IT in an inclusive and collaborative manner that best supports the strategic missions of the university. Important goals of this effort include:

  • Reduce and effectively manage the risk profile of CWRU;
  • Ensure business continuity and disaster recovery readiness by leveraging best-practices across the university;
  • Improve the “IT experience” across all areas of the university; and
  • Optimize the university’s investments in IT.

Attendees should bring their own lunch to the series; lunch will not be provided. The series will continue on the third Thursday of every month throughout the centralization process. The location will remain Nord Hall, Room 400, unless otherwise specified.

To register for the series and receive updates concerning the IT Centralization effort, complete the online form to be added to the project’s Google Group.
