Messenger - Vol. 3, No. 1, Page 17 Fall 1993 Susan Foster promoted to vice president Susan J. Foster, associate vice president for computing and network services since 1989, has been promoted to vice president for information technologies. "Susan Foster has presided over a great deal of technological innovation at the University of Delaware, and we are pleased to recognize her good service to the campus by way of a well-deserved promotion," Roselle said. "Information technology is an integral part of our University, and leadership at this high level is essential. We are very fortunate to have someone already at the University of Delaware with such clearly demonstrated capabilities." This summer, for example, he said, was "an exceptionally busy one" for Foster and her staff, as the latest in communication technology--from television to computing to telephones--came to campus, providing students with a wide range of new services. In her position, Foster has responsibility for the planning, policy, budget, acquisition and implementation of all central academic and administrative computing and University-wide telecommunications services, instructional and research applications, as well as the University's data, voice and video communications on the campus and across the state. In her four years at Delaware, Foster has overseen implementation of substantial expansion of electronic mail; a campus-wide data network and information service; remote interactive video service; new on-line systems for payroll/personnel, student information and gifts processing; Ethernet and cable TV services to student residence halls; digital switching and voice processing services; and a student computing initiative to enhance their computing and electronic information access through discounted resale of microcomputers and work stations, to name only a few. Foster, who directed Temple University's computing and information services functions before coming to Delaware, holds a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in psychoeducational processes, both from Temple. She also is a Ph.D. candidate there in psychoeducational processes.
