As leader of the nation’s largest comprehensive computer college, the dean of the B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Technology at Rochester Institute of Technology will share insights on less-obvious ways in which computers impact society.
Jorge Díaz-Herrera becomes the next presenter at RIT’s Presidential Colloquium series. His lecture, "The Invisible Computers in our Lives," is at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, April 15, in room 1400 of Building 70 on RIT’s Henrietta campus. Prior to joining RIT last summer as dean of the Golisano College, Díaz-Herrera served as department head of computer science at Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta, Ga. He was also program coordinator of the university’s Yamacraw project, an economic development initiative to establish Georgia as a world leader in the design of broadband infrastructure systems, devices and chips.
