IT governance at Penn is inclusive and participatory at multiple levels. As academics explore new and innovative approaches to learning and research, technology planners look for the supporting technologies that will underline future direction. Penn's distributed model for computing encourages collaboration as one of the primary tools by which the IT community comes together and takes action at the university level. This "coming together" has resulted in IT groups, some sponsored by ISC and others initiated by IT staff in schools and centers, that meet on a regular basis to exchange ideas, share innovations, explore new technologies, and reach consensus on IT issues and policies important to the Penn community:

IT Roundtable
Forum for senior technology officers, faculty, and students to discuss IT strategy

Network Planning Task Force (NPTF)
Forum for discussing issues surrounding the planning and funding of PennNet

Network Policy Committee (NPC)
Forum for developing, reviewing, and recommending network policies

Special Interest Groups & IT Announcement Lists
Forums for technical support and issues related to specific topics of interest to IT staff on campus

Super User Group (SUG)
A forum for information exchange among those within the Penn community who provide technical support, service, or IT direction
