Pace University names chief information officer
Pace University named a chief information officer as it looks to integrate the latest developments in information technology with the campus learning environment.
Ganesan Ravishanker comes to Pace from Wesleyan University in Middltown, Conn., where he was nationally recognized for technology initiatives that transformed teaching and learning. Ravishanker, associate vice president for information technology at Wesleyan since 2006, encouraged the spread of wireless networking on campus and in more than 200 houses Wesleyan owns.
He also helped create a new media lab to support increasing uses of multimedia in teaching and learning.
“Dr. Ravishanker has created powerful templates to help professors teach and students learn in the classroom and the digital domain,” said Geoffrey L. Brackett, Pace’s provost and executive vice president for academic affairs. “He’s bringing his well-known expertise to Pace just as we’re aggressively mapping out exciting new initiatives that will make Pace a quality leader in twenty-first century pedagogies.”
