Information Systems and Information Technology Governance
Governance is the broad category of policies, plans and procedures that help translate an organization's strategic objectives and plans into the management and control of the people, systems and resources allocated to those plans. Governance is thus strongly linked to organizational compliance with many kinds of government regulations and statutory requirements which aim to control or mitigate risk -- risk to investors, customers, employees and society at large. Two strongly competing governance models bring very different perspectives to this course. The first is data or information governance, which focuses on how the organization does an information or knowledge quality management process. The second is often called information technology governance, even though it focuses on the delivery of information services -- or knowledge work -- to the organization via systems and technologies.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
