This month, we are pleased to bring you an interview with Lisa Koch, Associate CIO for the Institute.  Lisa was happy to allow us to introduce her on our blog.

 

Tell us a little about your RIT career.

I joined RIT in December of 2018 in my current role as Associate CIO.  I had been affiliated with RIT as an adjunct for the College of Business, so RIT is not new for me.  I spent 7 years at the University of Rochester and have corporate experience as well.  

I find Higher Ed to be very collaborative which aides in benchmarking and knowledge sharing. 

This month, we are pleased to bring you an interview with Jeanne Casares, Associate Vice President & CIO for the Institute.  The Office of the CIO is a fairly busy spot but Jeanne was happy to sit down for an interview.

I just celebrated my 10th year anniversary here at RIT (which went by in a blink – time flies so quickly!) and have held the role of CIO at the helm of the Information Technology Services team since my arrival.

RIT Staff Council has been busy this Fall semester! Before we enjoy the Thanksgiving break and start thinking about the holiday season, I’d like to take some time to highlight what we’ve been up to and discuss our plans for the rest of the year. 

Oh what a year it has been! As Staff Council approaches a new cycle I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the accomplishments of the 2017-2018 year.

Some highlights include:
