IT leaders from the UI, Iowa State University and University of Northern Iowa met for a daylong retreat June 10 to strategize about how the three state institutions can collaborate to further institutional efficiency goals. Workgroups comprised of service representatives from each school identified opportunities for collaboration and reported findings out to their peers and the CIOs.

Successes of the day included: information sharing on encryption strategies for mobile devices, end-user support practices, and discussions of licensing and procurement opportunities. UI CIO Steve Fleagle said he was impressed by the potential opportunities that arose in the discussions.
