The Road Ahead

The role of the chief information officer (CIO) in higher education has expanded over time as technology has worked its way into people's daily lives, altering forever the way they work and learn, and becoming ubiquitous on campuses. IT is now critical to the business of education, and the CIO has stretched his or her influence to span key operational areas and diverse programs, often providing input to top institutional leadership and sometimes to the comprehensive strategic plan. Does that mean CIOship in higher education is a booming business? The author presents some perspectives from three experienced higher education professionals who have been tracking the higher education CIO for years: (1) Bruce Maas, CIO at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee; (2) Mely Tynan, recently retired CIO from Tufts University (Massachusetts); and (3) Wayne Brown, vice president for information technology at Excelsior College (New York). These three higher education IT leaders weigh in on what it means to be "chief information officer" now and in the future.
