This month we spotlight three IT staff who exemplify the One IT culture and model the Guiding Principles for One IT outlined in the IT Strategic Plan:
- Affirm our focus on K-Staters.
- Grow an evolving IT community.
- Lead with transparency.
- Serve as responsible stewards.
Marjorie Devlin is an Application Developer II and the development team lead in Library ITS. She devotes most of her work to the Ex Libris product stack, which includes the Library Discovery Layer. She has improved the product significantly over its lifespan, successfully integrating multiple data sources and features that have definitively improved the user experience for all K-Staters, affirming our focus on K-Staters. Her leadership of the developer team has led to substantial improvements in the organization of the team and its communication with the rest of the organization.
Michael Raine, Director of Information Technology for Business Administration, in his role as member of the Faculty Senate Committee on Technology (FSCOT) is affirming our focus on K-Staters. Since 2016, as chair, Michael has been leading with transparency by setting the agenda, promoting the conversation, conducting the business, and providing FSCOT reports to Faculty Senate. In this capacity Michael is a voice among our IT community, the administration, and campus as a whole. His work beyond the borders of his college promotes the growth of an evolving IT community.
Kristin Tobias, Client Services Coordinator, is affirming our focus on K-Staters. She along with others in her area are meeting with SLA customers to obtain feedback on strengths and improvables to provide a customer centric, outwardly focused culture.
KUDOS to all for exemplifying One IT.
