If you are part of the University of Minnesota system, you probably saw the announcement via email last week:
We are pleased to announce R. Scott Studham as the University of Minnesota's new vice president and chief information officer, pending approval by the Board of Regents in February. Scott has served as the chief information officer at the University of Tennessee since 2009, where he was responsible for the strategic direction and management of the university's information resources.

I was proud to represent Morris as part of the search committee for the new VP/CIO.
We believe Scott has an extraordinary vision for building on the existing strengths of the Office of Information Technology (OIT) to ensure the strategic and operational excellence of both academic and administrative information technology to support and advance all aspects of the University's mission. Scott will begin in his new position on February 13, 2012. Welcome, Scott!
