CIO Voices – Episode 1 – Interview with Dr. Casey Green of the Campus Computing Project

 

Welcome to the eCIO forum on CIO Voices.  This forum and podcast series is to share the Chief Information Officer perspective on issues and trends in higher education.  The interviews conducted also present ideas and real world examples of how College and University CIOs have engaged and partnered with their campus executive peers on solving and addressing these issues and trends.

This is Jim Dutcher and please consider accessing our website at eCIO.tv for this and our companion podcast series, Executive Voices.

Today I am pleased to welcome Dr. Casey Green to the CIO Voices podcast.  Casey is the founding director of The Campus Computing Project, the largest continuing study of the role of computing, eLearning, and information technology in American higher education. The project is widely cited by both campus officials and corporate executives as a definitive source for data, information, and insight about information technology planning and policy issues affecting U.S. colleges and universities.

Casey is often an invited speaker at some two dozen academic conferences and professional meetings each year, Green is also the author/co-author or editor of 20 books and published research reports and more than 100 articles and commentaries that have appeared in academic journals and professional publications. He is often quoted on higher education and information technology issues in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Inside Higher Education, and other print and broadcast media.

In October 2002 Casey Green received the first EDUCAUSE Award for Leadership in Public Policy and Practice. The EDUCAUSE award cites his work in creating The Campus Computing Project and recognizes his “prominence in the arena of national and international technology agendas, and the linking of higher education to those agendas.”

From 1989 to 1994, Casey Green was a senior research associate (1989-1991) and later director (1991-1994) of The James Irvine Foundation Center for Scholarly Technology at the University of Southern California. Prior to his affiliation with USC, Green held concurrent appointments from 1983-1989 as the associate director of UCLA’s Higher Education Research Institute and as the associate director of the American Council on Education/UCLA Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP), the nation’s largest and oldest empirical study of higher education. He is a graduate of New College (FL), and Casey Green completed his Ph.D. in higher education in public policy at UCLA.  So with that, I would like to welcome Casey Green to the CIO Voices podcast!

I would to thank Casey for his time and valuable insights here on the CIO Voices podcast.  This is Jim Dutcher and please consider accessing our website at eCIO.tv for this and our companion podcast series, Executive Voices.
