Annie Stunden has been working with MOR Associates since 2006 where she has been a leadership coach for the IT Leaders Program and has been a supporting consultant in many of the workshops. In Annie's work with MOR Associates she has worked primarily at Penn State University and the University of Illinois. This work with MOR Associates is post-retirement for Annie.
Annie retired in 2006 from the University of Wisconsin, Madison where she was CIO and Director of the Division of Information Technology (DoIT). Prior to Annie's position at Madison, she held leadership positions in the Information Technology organizations at Cornell University, Northwestern University and the University of Rochester. Annie came to higher education IT through health care IT. She was an Associate Director of Strong Memorial Hospital (part of the University of Rochester) where she led the IT organization as well as the Management Services and Planning organizations.
In her leadership roles in higher education IT, Annie has been on the Boards of CREN, CAUSE and Internet2. She is one of the founders of the Northern Tier Network Consortium (NTTF) and BOREAS, key pieces of our national network capability. She has served in a leadership role in bringing a major network POP to Chicago for our CIC schools and our colleagues. Annie also has led initiatives to bring leadership development to higher education IT through CAUSE and EDUCAUSE. She believes that the MOR Associates model of leadership development is better than any other program where she has participated either as an attendee or as a leader.
When Annie is not working with her colleagues in higher education through MOR Associates, she is staying in bed until 8 a.m., catching up on mystery novels, quilting and hanging out with her grandchildren.
