E10 Session Podcast: The Role, Rise, and Potential Demise of the CIO

Where goes the CIO? Campus IT leaders confront rising expectations (entitlements?) for IT resources and services, budget cuts across all levels of IT services, and the reorganization of IT units prompted in part by budget pressures. Additionally, many campuses are repositioning the role of the CIO on the larger campus organizational chart. The four CIOs in this panel discuss these issues and more, including the "CIO leadership crisis," personal and professional challenges and opportunities, and the mea culpa moments—what they have learned both from their own bad decisions and those of other IT leaders.

This panel session includes:

  • Mark Askren, CIO, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
  • Lev S. Gonick, Vice President for IT Services and CIO, Case Western Reserve University
  • Kenneth C. Green, Founding Director, The Campus Computing Project
  • Darrel Huish, Vice Chancellor of Technology and CIO, Minnesota State Colleges and Universities
  • Sally Jackson, CIO and Associate Provost, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
