• After the completion of a national search, chaired by Katryn Bowdle, we are pleased to welcome Christian Ecker as the new IT Director for the College of Arts & Media. Christian comes most recently from the University of Kentucky and has almost 20 years of high-level strategic experience in a variety of IT roles. In his role as Director of Technology with the College of Health Sciences at UK, he was responsible for all IT functions. He also spent eight years in IT positions with the College of Arts & Sciences at the same institution. Christian has experience building online courses and with instructional design/support. He also has extensive experience managing large teams, overseeing help desk operations and providing integrative technical and creative services to faculty and staff in the higher education setting. Christian's anticipated start date is March 1st. Thanks to Katryn and members of the search committee.

All best!
