Information Technology Governance

Information Technology Governance provides a framework to ensure operational efficiency and effectiveness of SMU’s IT portfolio.

SMU faculty, staff, and administration are members of the functional, strategic, and executive-level councils. These councils provide review and approval of projects that support the University's goals and objectives. Additional funding opportunities are provided to faculty and staff through University research and teaching grants.


We welcome your ideas for IT projects.

These may be projects that solve a current problem on campus, or projects that would add valuable new capabilities to the campus. Submissions will be presented to the IT Governance Council for approval and prioritization. To see a list of submitted ideas, select "View Submitted Ideas" button below.

If you have any questions, please contact the Project Management Office. For assistance with a customer service request, please contact the Help Desk at 214-768-HELP.
