Colleagues (please forgive cross postings):
I am sure many of you have already completed the 2016 CHECS higher education CIO study. The CHECS organization, led by Dr. Wayne Brown, has sent invitations to CIOs throughout higher education. If you have not received an invitation to the survey please contact Dr. Brown at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]><mailto:[log in to unmask]> to participate.
In its 13th year, this international study collects data on higher education CIOs and presents a detailed description of today’s CIO in higher education. The aggregate information provides significant insights that benefit current CIOs, their institution management teams and those who hope to become a CIO in the future. It helps us understand how today’s CIOs have come to this executive post; what one can do to prepare to become a CIO; and what skills, education, and knowledge management teams have come to expect from CIOs. Past study results have been widely published in the Chronicle of Higher Education, EDUCAUSE Quarterly, EDUCAUSE Review, Public CIO, Campus Technology, Gartner, and League for Innovation publications.
In addition to gathering basic organization information, the survey asks that you rank a list of expectations of a CIO in importance and rate your performance. Institution management teams will also be surveyed. Your evaluation will be aggregated with survey data from your institution management team and the CIOs and management teams from other institutions. All responses and personal information will be kept strictly confidential.
Please consider responding to the survey and helping to increase the size of the data set. Participation requires approximately 20 minutes and all responses and personal information are kept in strict confidence.
Thanks for considering this important activity in support of our profession.
