Project Management Office

The Project Management Office (PMO) engages and assists university departments encouraging the consistent application of best practices across projects, providing useful project management, process improvement, and business relationship management tools and guidelines.

It is our vision to create a foundation within Illinois Tech's IT organizations for the enhanced awareness and collaboration, increased efficiency and more consistent delivery of the right projects at the right time with the right resources.

It is our mission to provide a solid foundation for the university by creating an environment of measurable, disciplined project management professionalism where:

  • Customers reap the benefit of a carefully planned investment
  • Project success is the norm 
  • Project teams are proud of their work
