Vanderbilt IT Strategic Plan


 Strategy Infographic


The VUIT Strategic Plan is our team road map that will not only shape the direction of VUIT for the coming years, but also serve as a collective blueprint for the future. The plan is driven by 4 strategic priorities, 14 strategic goals, and approximately 60 strategic tasks. The success of the Strategic Plan relies on all of VUIT and will require many different teams to work collaboratively, cooperatively, and closely together.
