NOTE: Bruce Taggert announced due to Sherri Yerk-Zwickl's departure July 2017, this committee is on hold  until he has selected another Chair.


The Information Systems Steering Committee (ISSC) will enhance communication and understanding of Lehigh University information systems issues and directions.

ISSC reviews proposed projects relating to Information Technology (IT) functions and IT-enabled processes, evaluates them relative to the Lehigh University strategic plan and the operational needs of the University, and makes recommendations to the Vice Provost for Library & Technology Services (LTS) with regard to resource allocation and priorities.

ISSC also advises LTS on future needs and developments in the area of institutional systems and service improvement priorities at the enterprise and departmental levels.


In 1999 the LEWIS project team was formed as a result of the Banner software acquisition to provide the campus community with an oversight group responsible for developing the project implementation plan, assuring vendor compliance, monitoring schedules, and directing issues toward resolution. Since 1999 the growth and complexity of campus-wide information systems has expanded to include the new peripheral systems, web applications, and cloud-based services. The LEWIS project team has been renamed the Information Systems Steering Committee (ISSC) to take into consideration a broad cross-section of oversight issues related to existing and new systems. The new ISSC will be reviewing and discussing campus-wide information systems growth and development and not just Banner. This committee was reformed in January 2013.
