With a long career in information technology, Dr. Brown has conducted extensive research into professional development issues impacting higher education. During his session, he will analyze historical and emerging trends relevant to current CIOs and those higher education technology professionals considering future careers as technology leaders.  The presentation will examine CIO attributes, demographics, and succession plans and discuss key issues related to professional mentoring and CIO effectiveness.
