We do (Cleveland-Marshall College of Law).

Network and phones (including wireless phones/blackberries) are provided 
by campus IT .. we control the border firewalls and core and edge 
switches .. including those that belong to the law school. Change 
management (ie: firewall ACLs) is handled through campus IT.

After that .. they can generally do as they please. They operate their 
own email server (although we require incoming/outgoing mail to pass 
through defined intermediate gateways), their own domain/fileservers, 
etc. We do encourage (but do not require) the use of centralized 
services (come on folks .. it really *is* cheaper..).
