The Advisory function spans the governance layers and is comprised of Executive Boards & Councils, including the Information Technology Advisory Committee (ITAC), Faculties & Departments, Advisory Committees and the university community. Their focus is to bring the insights, viewpoints and priorities of their constituents to bear onto the governance process. The Advisory layer is representative of the university community and includes stakeholders at appropriate levels of the University of Alberta. They provide advice and receive ongoing reporting of project progress from the Strategic layer. They also feed project ideas to the Steering layer for consideration.
