MIT’s governance structure is supported by a strong system of committees and councils. Those listed on this website represent some that can serve as resources for administrators seeking information or needing assistance in resolving various challenges.

Administrative Systems Steering Committee

The Steering Committee plays an important role in advancing digital business transformation by guiding system development in a holistic manner to provide the best possible administrative computing experience for the MIT community.  

Information Technology Governance Committee

The IT@MIT Task Force identified a number of issues for focus, one of which was to create clear processes for decision-making. To address these issues, the Provost and the Executive Vice President and Treasure chartered a small, focused Information Technology Governance Committee.

International Coordinating Committee

The goal of this committee is to strengthen the support provided by MIT’s administrative offices and functions for the Institute’s international activities.
