The possibilities and challenges posed by advances in information technology have changed the landscape of leadership in higher education. This presentation will offer a glimpse into the perspectives of Jolene Koester, president of a regional comprehensive university (California State University, Northridge), on the role of information technology in her university's future. Gain insights into how university presidents spend their time and what they need to know to help them make good decisions for their institutions. How can presidents use information technology as an enabler of their institutional mission and goals? How can university information technology organizations be most responsive to the needs of the institution and the president?

#educause10 Interesting, honest perspective #E10_GS03

#E10_GS03 I wonder how much trust is a factor of admin/it in situations where it see the train coming and yell 2 get off the track

#educause10 #E10_GS03 advice: Presidential Communication is everything. Her public, private, informal, formal - every piece effects school.

#E10_GS03 It's assumed that IT always needs a governance structure, but what about other orgs in university? Important for them too?

#educause10 #E10_GS03 What is the Sound and Lightshow your Univ. President is creating for ur school? How can you make it more vivid?

w/o strategic focus will not see much improvement and change, simply cannot accomplish everything there is to do. #E10_GS03
