AITB History

The Academic Information Technology Board (AITB), a joint administration-faculty committee, served as the primary governance and oversight body for academic information technology and services at UCLA from March 13, 1997 through December 31, 1999. As its founding Charter established, the AITB entered its official "Sunset Clause" in December, 1999 and is no longer holding official meetings.

The AITB informed and advised the ongoing decision making responsibilities of UCLA's executive management and academic leadership in the areas of academic information technology. The Board served as the responsible campus agency for making recommendations concerning technology related budget requests and opportunities stemming from a variety of corporate and industrial relationships. The Board's oversight activities - concerning local, consortium, and central technology plans, budgets, and progress - endeavored to ensure coordination and informed decision making.
