The End User Technologies Sub-Committee governs the administration, enhancement and efficient use of desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones, collectively known as end user computing devices. These end user devices also interact with applications, storage, networks and other technologies that form a complete end user environment. As such, the use of these technologies in end user environments will also be governed by this committee.
As part of the Northern Illinois University information technology governance structure, this governance sub-committee derives its authority from the IT Steering Committee (ITSC).
The Sub-Committee may choose to conduct its business within three working groups:
Members may be nominated by anyone, but the IT Steering Committee approves all initial members and subsequent membership changes.
Members are expected to represent the best interest of the entire institution and not just their own unit. However, members are also expected to communicate the activities and decisions of the sub-committee back to their own unit and bring unit concerns back to the sub-committee.
Members will serve three-year terms, with membership terms staggered in equal measure throughout the sub-committee. All members may serve consecutive terms.
