The mission of the Council of Chief Information Officers (CIOs) is to serve the Universities of Wisconsin and their CIOs by providing leadership in the development and use of information technology. The council supports the unique needs of each institution while providing a forum for the development of opportunities that become possible when the institutions work together. The council promotes strategic partnership among the CIOs to enhance the CIO’s effectiveness on their campuses, throughout the UW system, and beyond.

The vision is to play a deliberate and visible leadership role in defining and enabling effective, efficient, and affordable information and instructional technology services throughout the Universities of Wisconsin.
