First Technologist Recognition award winners honored at Statewide IT

The IU IT Leadership Community (ITLC) created the first annual information technology awards and recognition program. We wanted to build a sense of community and pride among IT staff, recognize outstanding leaders at all levels, and increase awareness of IT projects and accomplishments.

The award winners were honored at the Statewide IT conference in October. The recipients in each category truly represent the best qualities of leadership and reflect the deep talent in UITS.
