As Chief Information Officer at DePauw University, my role is to ensure that effective, appropriate, and sustainable information resources, services, and technologies are available to enable all students, faculty members, and staff members of the university community.
What I believe . . .
Information technology (IT) serves as a thread that connects and supports nearly every aspect of a university’s vision and operations. DePauw University is committed to the liberal arts ideal of developing student skills in critical thinking, analytical reasoning and clear and effective communication. Information Services (I.S.) must work to support that vision.
We must strive to provide technologies that support the intellectual life of the University by facilitating inquiry, communication, and creativity, and to seek additional resources and explore new avenues that sustain the University’s leadership position in higher education. Ultimately, we know and believe that it is the connections that technology enables, not necessarily the technology itself, that are most important to our students, faculty members, and staff.
