New awards recognize leaders in info tech
March 2, 1998

As the University continues to advance rapidly toward the future - UConn was ranked one of the most wired colleges in the nation in a survey last May by Yahoo: Internet Life - Chancellor Mark Emmert has decided to honor some of the University's leaders in the field of information technology for their efforts by creating the annual Chancellor's Information Technology Awards.

"The University has attained a leadership position in many of the specialized areas of information technology in higher education," Emmert says. "The awards are intended to celebrate these accomplishments."

Nearly two dozen faculty and staff were nominated for awards. Their efforts are impressive. The six inaugural winners will receive their awards at a reception at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center this month.
