The Board of Regents has appointed Dr. Ravi Pendse as U-M’s vice president for information technology and chief information officer. In this role, Dr. Pendse will provide university-wide leadership and strategic direction for information technology.
“I have enjoyed getting to know Dr. Pendse during the search process and am very pleased that he will be joining the university this fall,” said Dr. Andrew Rosenberg, chief information officer for Michigan Medicine and interim VPIT-CIO, in a message to ITS and HITS staff. “Since accepting the interim VPIT-CIO role last November, I have gained a much deeper understanding and appreciation of IT across the university. While I will be focusing my attention back to Michigan Medicine this fall, I am very optimistic about the continued opportunities we have to partner across our campuses to better serve all facets of the university community.”
Dr. Pendse will begin August 1. Dr. Rosenberg will remain as the interim leader until then and assist with the transition through the month of August, before returning to devote his full-time attention to his position in Michigan Medicine.
