Role of CIO critical in higher ed's future - Roger Riddell, Education Dive

Citing an Educause and Jisc report that states future IT leaders in higher ed must bring strategic focus to the role, EdTech Magazine breaks down the importance of the position as campuses are increasingly required to adapt to the technological demands of the 21st Century. Strategy in the role must go beyond simply being a middle-man between a college or university's top administrators and IT, addressing how IT fits into the campus overall in relation to its strengths and weaknesses. A survey from CIO magazine suggests this is a challenge those in the position (regardless of official title, which can vary) are more than up for as they increasingly tackle business strategy as part of their day-to-day responsibilities.
