Who is ITS?

Who am us, anyway?!?!

ITS is the nine people who work in the Information Technology Services staff group of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations in Boston.

Here's our mission: We manage the technology that supports connections and information sharing among the UUA staff, congregations, districts, and the general public. We provide high-availability computing infrastructure, software tools and systems, consulting services, and technical support to UUA and district staff located throughout the United States. We directly manage and safeguard the constituent data of the Association.

Here's our vision: We are advisers, inventors, analysts, designers, tool makers, system administrators, trainers, and support specialists, helping the UUA staff fulfill its mission of supporting UU congregations, getting the word out about UUism, and being a respected public voice for liberal religious values.

And here are our shared values: We work with a spirit of collaboration and goodwill, value empowerment through sharing of knowledge, and treat one another and those we serve with respect in accordance with the UU Principles. We believe technology's value derives from being a means to achieve humanitarian ends.
