Appointment of the OIT Director

  December 21, 2000


Dear Colleagues:

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Professor Mark Aldenderfer as Director of the Office of Information Technology effective January 3, 2001. In this position, Professor Aldenderfer will take the lead in developing strategic plans for UCSB's information technology infrastructure, and in integrating information technology into the campus's research and instructional activities. He will have overall responsibility for the campus-wide information technology infrastructure and for the coordination of information technology services.

Professor Aldenderfer joined the UCSB Department of Anthropology in 1990, and is internationally known for his work on the archaeological analysis of foraging societies. He is Editor of the Society for American Archaeology Bulletin and of several web-based journals. He has served on the Executive Committee of the Society for American Archaeology and as Chair of its Task Force on Information Technology. Professor Aldenderfer has made extensive use of information technology in his research and teaching, and has written extensively on the challenges of digital data preservation and publication in his field. Since his arrival at UCSB, he has provided thoughtful advice on information technology through his participation in a wide variety of committees at the department, college and campus levels. We look forward to his leadership in his new position.
