UW faculty and staff also enjoy outstanding benefits, professional growth opportunities and unique resources in an environment noted for diversity, intellectual excitement, artistic pursuits and natural beauty. Information Technology (UW-IT) is the central IT organization for the University of Washington. UW-IT provides strategic planning, oversight, and direction for UW’s extensive IT infrastructure, resources, and services. UW-IT partners with the UW community to enable innovation, learning, discovery, and service. IT Infrastructure (ITI) division of UW-IT delivers the technology infrastructure required to sustain UW as a leading research, teaching, learning, and medical institution. These technologies support the UW’s core mission at all levels – research, teaching, learning, healthcare, and the necessary underlying administrative and operational functions required to deliver these services. ITI infrastructure supports all three UW campuses (Seattle, Bothell, and Tacoma), UW Medicine (medical centers and clinics), the state K-20 Education Network (300+ school districts), and the Pacific Northwest Gigapop (research & education networks throughout the PNW and Pacific Rim). ITI designs, builds, and operates technology infrastructure services including networks, computing & storage solutions, data centers, telecommunications services, identity & access management, and the infrastructure tools required to operate, integrate, and report on these services.
