The new CIO: Northeastern appoints VP for information technology

Northeastern has appointed Cole W. Camplese as the university’s new vice president for information technology and chief information officer, effective July 2 2018.

Camplese brings a wealth of experience in information technology leadership in higher education to Northeastern. He comes from the University of Chicago, where he currently serves as associate vice president for information technology and chief information officer.

“In his new role, Cole will serve as an integral advisor and partner in advancing the university’s strategic plan, Northeastern 2025, by supporting academic and administrative innovation through technology,” James C. Bean, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs, wrote in an email to faculty and staff.

Camplese will be responsible for envisioning, designing, and leading the Information Technology Services team, and said his priorities include bolstering systems that support faculty research, advancing the use of cloud services, and implementing measures to make data more secure, reliable, and available.
