Philip Long named as director of
Information Technology Services

Philip Long, a Yale alumnus and longtime University employee, has been appointed the new director of Information Technology Services (ITS) and University chief information officer.

During his nearly 30-year career at Yale, Long has held a wide range of technical and management positions at ITS and its predecessor organizations. "Phil has demonstrated a keen understanding of technology and skill at managing complex projects, and he has gained a deep technical knowledge of the University's information technology programs and infrastructure," write Provost Alison Richard and Acting Vice President for Finance and Administration Kemel Dawkins, in a letter announcing the appointment.

"We are immensely fortunate to have in our midst and be able to call upon at this time a person with Phil's long record of innovation and accomplishment, his broad knowledge of and deep commitment to Yale, his vast technical expertise, and his talent for leadership at Yale and in the higher education community," they add.

A 1970 graduate of Yale College, where he majored in psychology, Long began his career as a programmer at the Yale Computer Center (YCC). He later became manager of systems programming, associate director, and in 1985, director of YCC. In 1989, he assumed the dual roles of director of technology and planning and director of ITS Academic Media & Technology (formerly known as Academic Computing Services). He has been serving as acting director of ITS since Jan. 1.

During his career at Yale, Long has worked closely with administrators, faculty, staff and students to enhance teaching and learning through the use of information technology. He established Yale's user support programs within the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and related services in several of the schools. He is one of Yale's key representatives to the University Alliance on Life-Long Learning, the recently announced alliance of Yale, Princeton, Stanford and Oxford Universities created to develop high-quality distance learning programs.

Long has served on the Provost's Advisory Committee on Information Technology, the Yale College Committee on Teaching and Learning, the University Budget Committee, the Committee on Teaching of Languages, and the Human Resources Policy Advisory Committee, among others. He is a frequent consultant to colleges and universities around the country on the management of information technology, and he plays a leading role in the Common Solutions Group, a 25-university consortium focused on sharing information technology tools and strategies.
