VP-CIO Office

Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Elias G. Eldayrie

Information Technology is a primary facilitator shaping the university’s future, which in turn shapes our community, our state, and the world beyond.  Increasingly, it is information technology devices and services that serve as the tools enabling advances in research, education, clinical practice, extension, and outreach.

Our job in UFIT is to provide faculty, students, and staff with the robust, high-quality IT services required to do mission- critical work. I invite your  feedback  about UFIT—on current services and any ideas you have for improving the IT environment at our university.
