The CIO position has evolved into an accepted and traditional role at higher education institutions as technology has become a permanent fixture throughout most U.S. institutions. This report, created by Center for Higher Education Chief Information Officer Studies (CHECS), examines the evolution of the CIO role and the responsibilities that CIOs undertake within an institution. The 2017 report highlights important developments such as the lack of diversity for CIOs, the graying of the profession, and the fact that a degree in business is second only to a degree in technology as a credential for higher education CIOs.
CHECS, through its founder Dr. Wayne A. Brown, has studied higher education CIOs since 2003, making the report a valuable resource for technology leaders.
