Krogull Named Chief Information Officer
Steve Krogull has been named the permanent chief information officer and associate vice chancellor for university information technology for the University of Arkansas after assuming the role as the interim since March.
Krogull has been at the forefront of the campus information technology response to the COVID-19 pandemic including helping transition the campus to remote instruction and work for campus students, faculty and staff.
In that endeavor, he partnered with the U of A Global Campus to support remote instruction across all academic programs and services, while enabling on-campus computing access and maintaining limited computer lab operations for students who were unable to leave campus.
"I am honored to have the opportunity to continue to work with our students, faculty, and staff in this position," Krogull said. "This is a challenging and exciting time for the university. I look forward to collaborating with the campus community to support excellence at the University of Arkansas."
Krogull has been at the U of A since October of last year when he was named the associate chief information officer for research and academic technology. In that role, his primary focus was leading enterprise information technology services supporting campus research and academic activities. Through collaboration with multiple groups and units across campus, Krogull has helped bring new offerings of cutting-edge information technology for various research and academic programs.
"I am looking forward to partnering with Steve as CIO to use technology to drive productivity and efficiency across our campus," said Ann Bordelon, vice chancellor for finance and administration. "He has a great balance of operational focus and strategic vision. Steve has been a steady and strong leader during his interim appointment and he has earned the confidence of University leadership quickly."
Prior to his arrival in Fayetteville, Krogull was at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, where he served in several leadership roles covering research support, learning solutions and systems engineering. Before Wisconsin, he was an adjunct assistant professor and an instructional designer.
Krogull has a B.S. in radio-television communications and an M.S. in educational media from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.
