For the Michigan IT Community

More than 2,600 IT professionals work in U-M's schools and colleges, libraries, research institutes, health system, technology offices, and administrative units to further the university's missions through the innovative use of technology.

The Office of the VPIT-CIO sponsors multiple programs and events to build community, foster skills & professional development, and promote innovation across U-M's IT professionals. Learn more about Michigan IT.

Communities of Practice

The Michigan IT working group supports numerous Communities of Practice (CoPs), in which like-minded professionals share information, experiences, and ideas around a particular IT topic in support of the university’s missions.


U-M Michigan IT events are some of the best ways to bring our diverse community of technology professionals and advocates together. Providing and showcasing opportunities to network and collaborate across university boundaries is essential to building up, supporting each other, and advancing technology across the academic, research, and business areas of the university. Check out our upcoming events and review the success of some of our past events.
