Why IT Matters: A President's Perspective on Technology and Leadership

Friday, October 31 | 11:30AM–12:30PM | West Hall WE2
Session Type: Professional Development

In May 2003, Nicholas Carr's Harvard Business Review article postulated that information technology doesn't matter. As higher education enters a period of great change, such issues as sustainability, diversity and student access, affordability, and accountability will increasingly dominate our institutional strategies. This talk will focus on a presidential view of why IT does matter and how aspiring IT leaders can work with presidents to help their campuses innovate and succeed in addressing these important issues.
