The Chief Information Officer in Higher Education, 2012 Reports

Monday, June 18, 2012


This study provides information about higher education CIOs’ attributes, education, experience, and effectiveness and about the technology professionals who are likely to replace these CIOs. The research is unique in that it involves the CIO,  the technology leaders reporting to the CIO, as well as other members of the institution’s management team. The study invites participation from the CIO, or lead technology person, at every two- and four-year higher education institution in the United States. Separate reports are written describing CIOs and technology leaders. The data are beneficial to seasoned technology leaders and those who aspire to become CIOs, as well as to those who may be hiring a CIO in the future.
