CIC Leadership Opportunity: Associate Director for Technology Collaborations

Feb 05, 2014
The Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) seeks a senior leader with energy, drive, tact and tenacity to serve as the Associate Director for Technology Collaboration.  The ideal candidate will possess experience in a research university setting, understanding of the application of technology in higher education, and successful experience in moving seemingly disparate groups and individuals to action.

Working with and for the CIC Chief Information Officers, and reporting to the Executive Director of the CIC, the Associate Director for Technology Collaboration will manage a portfolio of existing high-performing collaborations (including the OmniPoP high speed network; collaborative identity management; IT accessibility; and shared data storage and services), work with Provosts on large-scale online learning initiatives, and will work with the CIOs, the CIC staff, and other senior leaders in the member universities to conceptualize and implement high-impact, collaborative projects.

The CIC offers a highly collegial headquarters office and the ability to work with some of the best leaders in American higher education. The staff has a genuine appreciation for research universities in general, and the CIC universities in particular. Skilled in synthesizing information from many discussions into focused areas for action, the CIC team possesses the abilities to distinguish great ideas from the mediocre, deftly handle both concepts and personalities; and have the wherewithal to move projects from idea to action with autonomous groups and individuals.
