streamlining, and ensuring efficient technological systems, processes, and infrastructure. In doing so, the CIO will evaluate the existing
policies and systems at MSMU, advocate for additional resources, and implement infrastructure changes in support of all students, faculty,
and staff. A large task for the next CIO will be ensuring the various systems used to support the operations of the university are better
integrated across units and the two campuses for improved service and access to data. The successful candidate will also be expected to
address the following opportunities and challenges:

  • Drive and implement a technology strategy in support of the
    university’s strategic plan
