Vice President for Information Technology and CIO, Excelsior College
The higher education CIO is a relatively new role that is critical to the institution. In 2013, 49% of CIOs predicted they would retire in the next 10 years. To further complicate this retirement challenge, technology leaders (those in the next organizational layer down from the CIO) may not be interested in the CIO position or adequately preparing for it if they are interested. This research, now in its tenth year, has been widely published and quoted. This presentation will report on the 2013 results of the longitudinal higher education CIO and technology leader study conducted by Wayne Brown, founder of the Center for Higher Education Chief Information Officer Studies (http://www.checs.org/).
