It is my honor to serve as Interim Vice Provost for Information and Technology and CIO for OSU. In this role I directly lead two great organizations that provide the essential foundation of Information and Technology that define a modern University experience for our students and 21st century capabilities for our faculty to teach and conduct research.
As CIO, I am also responsible for the entire IT practice at OSU and through my office I coordinate overall strategy, service coordination, and policy for IT services in support of OSU’s mission. Our state of the art teaching facilities in the Learning Innovation Center (LiNC), our top-performing Wifi network, and our nationally recognized Analytics and Reporting offerings are testament to the dedication of OSU’s IT staff to providing the tools and information that our students and faculty need to create healthy people, a healthy planet and a healthy economy through our aggressive research agenda, excellent educational programs, and community engagement.
