Job Specification (CTO) and IM Department Renamed
April 30, 2013
Dear Campus Community,
After conversations with technology experts in both higher education and the private sector, the reviewers from our recent Information Management external review, and our Information Management staff, I have decided to rename our vice president for information management position the chief technology officer (CTO). In a rapidly changing technological environment, I believe this title better captures the type of individual and skills we are seeking. Attached you will find the job specification we will use to recruit our next CTO.
Additionally, beginning this fall, the Information Management Department will be renamed Information Technology Services. Our IM department proposed this change (which I understand is a name from the past) and I am supportive of their proposal.
If you have any suggestions or nominations of CTO candidates, please do not hesitate to send them to me or any member of the search committee. As always, if you have any questions, please visit our website or let me know.
