Name Changed to ‘Office of Information Technology’

February 3, 2016

The Office of Information Resources is pleased to announce that we have changed our name to Office of Information Technology (OIT), effective immediately. What a great way to start the new year! This name change better reflects the operations of OIT and aligns our identity with other universities.

Our name change is only the first of many changes to look for from OIT. We have many exciting initiatives that are happening. “While seemingly minor on the surface, the name change represents a new path forward. With the new services that we are rolling out on several tech fronts, this rebranding is the perfect timing for 2016 and beyond,” according to Scott Willett, Associate Vice President of OIT. As emails and web addresses are updated, the existing addresses will be redirected automatically. The name change will be implemented over the next several months.

We are looking at everything from facilities to strategic technologies to ensure we are aligned with the strategic priorities of UT Dallas. So stop by and see us. Tell us how we’re doing and check out our office improvements while you’re here; and be sure to look for upcoming announcements from the “new” Office of Information Technology.
