Academic Technology Committee


The Academic Technology Committee (ATC) is charged with advising on technology directions, strategies, policies, plans, and priorities important to Loyola’s goals in teaching, learning, research, and other academic objectives. The ATC strives to represent strategic academic units and administrative areas across the University. It meets three times in the fall, and another three times in the spring for a total of six meetings during the academic year. For continuity, members are asked to serve a minimum of two years. The ATC Chair presents Committee recommendations to the IT Executive Steering Committee (ITESC) for further consideration.
