The Project Management Office (PMO) plays a pivotal role in ensuring that projects across university departments are executed efficiently and effectively. The PMO assists university departments by encouraging the consistent application of best practices and by providing helpful tools for project management, process improvement, and business relationship management. 

Our vision is to create a foundation across Illinois Tech's organizations for enhanced awareness and collaboration, increased efficiency, and consistent delivery of suitable projects, executed at the right time with the right resources. 

It is our mission to provide a solid foundation for the university by creating an environment of measurable, disciplined project management professionalism where: 

  • Customers reap the benefit of a carefully planned investment 

  • Project success is the norm 

  • Project teams are proud of their work

Project Requests

The PMO’s project selection process is based on ROI, or Return on Investment, which measures the value or savings gained relative to the effort expended. This approach ensures alignment with the university’s strategic plan. We value community input and invite feedback to improve the selection process. See detailed information on the selection process below.
