Jordan announces IT reorganization

By Donna Fowler

President Stephen Jordan today announced that James Lyall, chief information officer/associate vice president for academic and student affairs, will head the newly named Technology Services department, which will be housed under the Office of the Provost/Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs.

“A unified Technology Services team will benefit the University greatly,” says Golich. “It sets the stage for us to plan comprehensively based on the needs of all University units and then provide the requisite services to each unit.”

“Technology Services will work in partnership with faculty and the campus community through the shared governance structure outlined in the strategic plan to implement and provide ongoing management of this new model,” Lyall says.

The consolidation and renaming of the Academic Computing and Administrative Computing areas was one of the recommendations in the Technology Services Strategic Plan adopted June 17 by the President’s Cabinet. At the time, Jordan said he would announce the level of position to head the department and the reporting structure by July 1.

“With James’ leadership capabilities and the recommendations of the IT Strategic Planning Task Force—who I want to thank again for their hard work—we are on a path that will advance the goals we have set forth in MSU Denver’s five-year strategic plan:  A Time of Transformation,” Jordan says.
