Message from Michele Norin, Senior Vice President & Chief Information Officer
In my role at Rutgers, I have the privilege of working with many accomplished, dedicated people. During this past year, as we continued to face the pandemic, I watched how IT professionals across the university rallied to ensure the university’s operations continued in the face of immense challenges. These staff members keep the Rutgers network running. They assist faculty members and students with everything from Canvas to ScarletMail. They’re the people behind essential tools and resources, from myRutgers to the Amarel research computing cluster. It’s no understatement to say these IT professionals power Rutgers, and the university wouldn’t function without them.
For this year’s Rutgers IT annual review, we wanted to try something a bit different and introduce you to the IT professionals whose behind-the-scenes smarts and savvy keep Rutgers running. It’s a fun, diverse, and talented bunch, and I hope you’ll spend the time to get to know them.
