CTC Retreat delivers learning and networking
The 2015 CTC Retreat at the Carolina Club informed Carolina’s IT professionals about new technologies and efforts from across the University and enabled them to make new connections and reconnect with colleagues they don’t encounter regularly on campus.
“The CTC community respects each other, wants to learn from each other, and at the end of the day knows how to throw a party,” said Clint Kale, 2015 CTC President.
Kathy Anderson, Assistant Dean for Information Technology at the Gillings School of Global Public Health, called the CTC Retreat “the best opportunity I have all year to mingle with, learn from and celebrate our IT community.”
The sessions that attracted the largest crowds were “Diversity & Inclusion in IT” panel and an update on the Office 365 migration project.

Digital Roadmap event promotes elevating digital marketing and communications
The more than 60 Carolina professionals invited to attend the event heard from presenters and a panel that the UNC-Chapel Hill campus community must elevate its digital marketing and communications game. Why? The speed of tech innovation is surging and communications increasingly rely on social and data.
The takeaways were that University organizations can improve their marketing and communications by increasing innovation, boosting integration between technology and communication, and by interacting more with one another. Attendees also learned that digital agility is critical as campus organizations determine how to strategically move forward to best serve applicants, students, alums and donors.
