UCLA's Office of Information Technology has six distinct areas within the organization:
Campus Educational Systems & Administration
Campus Educational Technology Systems & Administration participates in the institutional coordination, alignment, and development of IT system requirements, IT infrastructure, educational technology platform technologies and services, and their integration and application. The office is involved in numerous educational technology initiatives, such as online learning, intellectual property, copyright, and educational data analytics.
Community Partnership Programs
Community Partnership Programs' role is to work with and mobilize the community to develop, direct, and lead campus-wide community partnership programs to advance “digital citizenship,” support exchange of IT innovation and capability, and establish solution-based community partnerships within UCLA and the external community.
Mobile and Web Strategy, Education & Research
The Mobile and Web Strategy Group provides UCLA's Academic and Research community with emerging, accessible and leading edge mobile and web technology. We focus on enabling the UCLA academic, research and developer communities with new open source pilot opportunities, cross platform tools and open standards development.
Research Technology Group
The Research Technology Group (RTG) is comprised of a talented core of scientists, scholars, and post-doctoral researchers with areas of specialization and expertise that align with one of the five IDRE programs: High Performance Computing resources and expertise, Grid and Cloud Access Services, Cluster Services, the Grid Portal, and UCLA’s Data Center system. The RTG provides services and support aligned with the five IDRE programs.
Strategic IT Policy & Chief Privacy Officer
The Strategic Policy Office shapes institutional IT policy, both driving the campuswide agenda for such policies and participating in the national discourse on IT issues of strategic concern to the academy. The Chief Privacy Officer is the point of contact at the university on matters concerning the privacy of individuals and of their information, and works closely with the many campus offices that have compliance or operational responsibilities for privacy; and with the Chief Compliance Officer of the UCLA Health System and the David Geffen School of Medicine.
Strategic Programs & Operations
Strategic Programs & Operations is responsible for internal OIT/IDRE policies and ensures that the organization’s business practices are aligned with UC policies and comply with local, state, and federal regulations. The Operations Team also oversees the business relationships between OIT/IDRE and all internal and external clients and administers memoranda of understanding between OIT/IDRE and its partners.
