About the CIO Division

Igniting a New Era of Technology Transformation

Technology at the University of Arizona is essential to the mission of research, teaching, and learning and is the foundation to the academic and administrative operations of the campus. With a new future on the horizon, University Information Technology Services (UITS) has taken this unique moment to emerge with even more robust service capabilities than we offered before the pandemic. 

The CIO division has over 350 employees and an annual operating budget of approximately $77.6 million. It is the University's central IT unit (including University Analytics & Institutional Research and the Information Security Office). The division provides enterprise-level technologies and services that are broadly consumed, core to central administrative business operations, and tend to offer substantial economies of scale. The division is reshaping the way information technology is strategically managed at the University by collaborating with partners in academic, research, and administrative units to help advance departmental missions, enhance productivity, and leverage cost-effective IT infrastructure. 

The Chief Information Officer is the University of Arizona’s senior information technology executive and is responsible for the oversight of campus-wide information technology functions and strategy. Reporting to the Office of the Secretary, the CIO advises University leadership and strategic partners on the general management of campus operations through the CIO division and by leveraging and leading IT partners across the campus in collaboration with faculty, staff, and students.
