Anna Lewis and Brenda Spychalla are the new co-chief information officers for UW-Madison’s School of Education and co-directors of MERIT, Dean Diana Hess announced.
Lewis and Spychalla have held those positions on an interim basis since mid-August 2015.
“Brenda and Anna are uniquely qualified to lead MERIT and, more broadly, to serve as co-chief information officers,” says Hess. “Individually, they have demonstrated consistently and superbly their ability to direct a wide variety of technology and information services that are so vital to the School. Together they have worked, and will continue to work, as a dynamic team. Rarely have I seen a partnership that operates so effectively. I am thrilled that they have agreed to serve in these important roles.”
