One of the things I love about tech and teaching is the constant new tools to promote community service projects and organizations.
University of Phoenix (UOP) is one of these types of organizations. UOP is a member of the new generation of for profit schools and online education pioneers.
I've been teaching at UOP for nearly 10 years and seen massive improvements and changes. No organization is perfect. This is obvious but UOP has faced its challenges and problems and changed. Improved. This is not true of all businesses, organizations, or leaders. UOP is consistingly improving. It's awesome to be part of UOP.
At the Fresno Campus, I'm lucky to collaborate with a team that strives to improve themselves, their students, our campus, and UOP.
An IT steering committee is a committee of senior executives to direct, review, and approve IT strategic plans, oversee major initiatives, and allocate resources. It is not involved in day-to-day management of the IT organization. Rather, the steering committee establishes IT priorities for the business as a whole.
