Name Change Clarifies Organization's Purpose

\t?As of mid-November, the Division of Information Technology (IT) was officially renamed Information and Educational Technology (IET). The name change is in keeping with the Administrative Unit Review (AUR) report issued last year which recommended the recruitment of a Vice Provost for Information and Educational Technology. The new name is intended to further clarify the organization's role in support of instructional technology and, more generally, the campus's mission. A transition plan has been developed to implement the name change in official communications, including the IT Times (starting with this issue), business documents, publications, and Web pages. IET's homepage will remain accessible via http://it.ucdavis.edu/. As with major organizational changes, IET anticipates this effort will take some time. The goal, however, is to make it as transparent to clients as possible. If you have questions or comments resulting from this name change, please send them by email to vpiet-info@ucdavis.edu.
