Message from the Vice President for Information Technology and CIO

After more than a year of redirected efforts due to the pandemic, we are eager to focus on investing in our people, improvement of our process, and overall campus innovation. Our theme, Moving Forward Together, reflects our mission and values and new vision for the future.

Our plan is the result of a two day facilitated retreat in June 2021 where we identified our strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Opportunities for improvement, innovation, and IT investments were aligned with the college’s mission, current strategic plan and Facilities master plan. We identified broad yet attainable goals and created internal objectives and tasks accordingly. Achieving these goals will have a genuine impact on the everyday experience for our entire campus community.

Technology changes quickly therefore our plan is a roadmap for the upcoming academic year and is considered a living document. You are encouraged to contact us at computing@daemen.edu or mkenyon@daemen.edu. We welcome your questions and comments.
