The University of Notre Dame ranks No. 35, the highest-ranking university, in IDG’s Computerworld 2013 Best Places to Work in Information Technology (IT) survey, a ranking of the top 100 organizations that challenge their IT staffs while providing great benefits and compensation. Organizations will be featured in the June 17 issue of Computerworld along with results from the 20th annual survey.

“Over the last several years, we have focused on our people. We have extraordinary staff and we continuously strive to help them develop and find challenging opportunities on campus,” said Ron Kraemer, chief information and digital officer for Notre Dame. “I am extremely proud of our teams and that Notre Dame is committed to embrace and advance a great work environment.”

Notre Dame’s Office of Information Technologies (OIT) works collaboratively with other IT staff throughout the University to support all faculty, staff and students. The OIT’s vision is to enhance and sustain service excellence in five key areas: teaching and learning, research and scholarship, campus life, University operations and support for Notre Dame’s Catholic mission. To do this, it focuses on delivering value, driving innovation and developing its staff.

“We applaud the organizations on the Best Places to Work in IT list for creating and sustaining dynamic IT work environments,” said Scot Finnie, editor-in-chief of Computerworld. “This year, several new names have joined the stalwarts that make the list year after year. It’s clear that the best IT workplaces are constantly raising the bar with great benefits, new learning opportunities, access to cutting-edge technologies and challenging business-critical projects.”

The Best Places to Work in IT list is an annual ranking of the top 100 work environments for technology professionals by IDG’s Computerworld. The list is compiled based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention. In addition, Computerworld conducts extensive surveys of IT workers, and their responses factor heavily in determining the rankings.

Notre Dame’s goals of providing an unsurpassed undergraduate education, excellence in research and operational excellence have brought a new focus on technology at the University. As the technology world changes, and the needs of campus change, OIT is dedicated to partnering with campus and finding the right solutions.
