MSU IT Council Work Groups & Committees

IT Council Work Groups are formed to address a particular issue or complete a specific project. Then the work group is dissolved.

An IT Council Committee is a longer standing body addressing ongoing specific focus areas typically with no end date. Group leaders are bolded.
