I am thrilled and honored to be named as one of the influential individuals in higher education IT on EdTech: Focus on Higher Education’s 2023 list. Over the past three-plus years, higher education IT departments have played a vital role in navigating unprecedented challenges, including the implementation of remote learning, managing on-campus technologies, and combating cyber threats.
