The Senate Computing and Information Technology Committee monitors computing, computer-related activities, and policies and procedures affecting access to computing resources at the University of Pittsburgh for the University’s Senate Council and Faculty Assembly. The Committee is concerned with both academic and research computing and administrative information systems issues. The committee monitors issues, provides input on new initiatives, and reviews policies and procedures that affect students, faculty, and staff. The Senate Computing and Information Technology Committee is committed to infusing the best practices of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and sustainability into all aspects of computing and information use at the University of Pittsburgh. The Committee recognizes that the Digital Divide – access to computer, Internet, smartphones, and other technologies – extends beyond physical access to include barriers to use of technology, including knowledge and skills, and that inequities in access to and use of computing and information technology remain an ongoing challenge.
