About the EIAM Program

Completed in July 2018, the Enterprise Identity Access Management (EIAM) program at U-M coordinated IAM efforts for all U-M campuses—Ann Arbor, Dearborn, Flint, and Michigan Medicine—to improve the technology and administrative processes that allow authorized individuals to access U-M resources. The initiative was jointly funded in January 2017 by the Office of the Provost and Michigan Medicine.

EIAM Program Mission

  • Make it easier for the U-M community and our collaborators around the globe to get the right access to systems and information at the right time.
  • Align with U-M's IT Strategy.

Through multiple projects, the EIAM Program:

  • Laid the foundation to set universitywide IAM priorities with a single program office and steering committee.
    Prepared for future improvements by piloting new services and identifying universitywide requirements.
    Delivered immediate improvements to enhance the current state for the entire U-M community.

EIAM Program Office

The EIAM program included team members from across U-M campuses, with a concentration in Information and Technology Services (ITS) and Health Information Technology & Services (HITS). Other U-M community members were involved through specific projects, outreach efforts, or participation on the steering committee and project-specific advisory groups.

EIAM Program Steering Committee

A steering committee representing all campuses and mission areas oversees the implementation of the EIAM roadmap to ensure visibility, alignment, and program success. The steering committee will continue to meet beyond the program to discuss ongoing, high-impact IAM projects and initiatives.
