ITCC Report to Faculty Senate, February 2013

  • The ITCC welcomes our new CIO, Greg Smith
  • Commended Frank Liu for his decade of membership and Vice Chair 2006-2013 and elected Thomas Vojta the new Vice Chair
  • Elected Jeff Schramm new Chair of e-Learning Subcommittee to replace Frank
  • Library / IT Presentation on replacing Documentum with Dspace. These sites won’t be updated from 2/21 – 3/8: people.mst.edu and scholarsmine.mst.edu and the changes will come gradually for about a month after 3/8. Discussion ensued and a motion was passed re integration with updates to the Faculty Accomplishment System.
  • Abhijit Gosavi was elected ITCC Representative to the Library Advisory Board
  • Greg Smith presented report we requested re timeline and lessons learned from last Fall’s computer security incident. A motion was passed re prevention of similar problems in the future. Discussion included the need for better communication in the future. System people verified that all system campuses had the same response plan that we did. Domains that should be exceptions to email filtering can be emailed to Karl Lutzen.
  • Discussed wish list for Computer Security as a key strategic resource on campus. Requests include faculty and staff slots, security clearances for key personnel particularly in leadership positions, student jobs and scholarships, and revenue-generating activities such as short courses.
  • It has also been suggested that the ITCC should have a direct input into the strategic planning process since IT is a key strategic resource.
  • BPM-911 is being revised in response to our complaints and a better vetting process is being identified.
  • The Open Forum this year will be March 15, 1:15 – 5 PM, right after the TLTC in the Civil Engineering Building. Everybody is encouraged to register for the latter and drop in to the former. Both events will be very interesting and well worthwhile.
motions passed

The ITCC would like to express its gratitude and commend Frank Liu for lengthy service as Vice Chair of ITCC and Chair of the ITCC e-Learning Subcommittee.

  • It is very important to create compatibility between the Dspace system and whatever will replace the Faculty Accomplishment System. The ITCC requests a briefing on this.
  • Mandatory Computer Security Awareness training is needed. Some optimal period for password changing needs to be determined.

Motions Passed
