Rings of Excellence
The ITS Rings of Excellence are used to illustrate and reinforce the concept of performance excellence for technology services at Loyola University Chicago. The rings represent five core areas where major technology investments are focused. The top three rings are the reason why we are here: to support faculty (Academic and Faculty Support), staff (Administrative Initiatives), and students (Student Technology Support) in the activities of teaching, learning and research. The bottom two gold rings are the underlying platforms on which we deliver all of these services:via secure, physical hardware and devices (Infrastructure), and the associated services and support in the forms of service improvement, enhancements, and innovation (Continuous Service Development). With these ring categories, we are able to capture the institutional goals identified in the LUC Strategic Plan and map our major initiatives to the institutional goals and these five core focus areas.
