on a Unified DLE.

Meet the Planning Teams

Three teams/committees are being charged to help develop a comprehensive implementation, transition, and training program:

  • The SUNY Digital Learning Environment (DLE) Steering Committee is comprised of the Executive Leadership Team of SUNY System Administration, procurement and academic technology staff. Representative campus presidents, chief academic officers, chief information officers, University Faculty Senate, Faculty Council of Community College, and Student Assembly leadership will be called upon to engage with this group as needed.
  • The SUNY Digital Learning Environment (DLE) Core Strategy Team is comprised of representatives from several SUNY System Administration Offices: Provost’s Office, Office of Information Technology, SUNY Online, Office of Academic Technology and Information Services, ITEC and SICAS.Diagram showing the internal SUNY teams and workgroups helping plan the DLE project.

The graphic also shows a series of workgroups that have been established: Academic Standards and Policy, Technical Architecture, Security, Technical Implementation, Campus Implementation. And two supporting teams, the Contract Team and the Communications Team.
  • The SUNY Digital Learning Environment (DLE) Advisory Team is a campus/System advisory body. The constituencies represented on the Advisory team are intentionally broad: chief information officers; LMS administrators; instructional designers; DOODLE (Directors of Online/Distance Learning Environments); ITEC; faculty governance; student governance; FACT2; disability and accommodative services officers; Educational Opportunity Centers; chief diversity officers; student affairs officers; electronic and information technology (EIT) accessibility officers; continuing education and workforce development; micro-credential leads; state-operated and community college business officers; risk management/information security; communications; and, more. Those members representing SUNY-wide organizations will share information with, and solicit feedback from, their constituent members to the broader team.
  • The SUNY DLE Core Strategy Team created three workgroups to support their planning: academic standards, technical architecture, and security. In addition, a technical implementation work group and a campus implementation planning work group will be the bridge between advisory recommendations and implementation on the ground. These teams will be comprised of campus and System Administration staff.
