Biography

For more than 20 years, Marty Ringle has contributed to the higher education IT profession as a change agent, a collaborator, and an organizer. He has held faculty appointments in the fields of philosophy and computer science and led the development of the first bachelor's program in cognitive science in the U.S., at Vassar College while serving as chair of Vassar's computer science department. Since 1989, Dr. Ringle has been chief information officer for Reed College, where he has built a strong staff, outstanding facilities, and solid institutional reputation for excellence in computing. At Reed, he has applied his fiscal acumen toward leveraging relationships with vendors, alumni, and peer institutions to provide cost-effective approaches to IT. In the late 1980s, he was founding chair of the Consortium of Liberal Arts Colleges (CLAC)—a national nonprofit group of 66 selective colleges. He brought the same collaborative strengths to his work with the Northwest Academic Computing Consortium (NWACC), developed to provide Internet access to the northwest. He chaired the NWACC board during the sale of its subsidiary, NorthWestNet, and since 1999 has served as president and CEO of the consortium. Dr. Ringle has chaired the boards of higher education organizations such as EDUCAUSE, the Consortium of Liberal Arts Colleges (CLAC), REN-ISAC, and served on numerous other boards or advisory groups such as the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE), the Center for Higher Education Chief Information Officer Studies, Apple, SCT, Addison-Wesley, the Fielding Graduate Institute, and is currently a trustee of Marylhurst University. He is a respected consultant for many colleges and universities, known for his ability to deliver clear, useful reports; his publications and presentations are popular for their warmth and enduring insight. Dr. Ringle holds a Ph.D. in philosophy, jointly sponsored by the T.J. Watson School of Engineering, from Binghamton University.
