UALR Chancellor Joel E. Anderson has announced the appointment of three interim vice chancellors. The appointments, effective July 1, follow the retirement of vice chancellors who leave the university at the end of June. Nathan Nolen, associate director of project management, will become interim vice chancellor for Information Technology Services, following the retirement of Dr. Jeannie Winston. Searches for the positions will begin in the fall semester, Anderson said.
Nathan Nolen came to UALR in 2007 after 10 years with Acxiom Corp. While at Acxiom, Nolen was a team leader and decision support analyst. He has a masterâ€™s degree in management information systems from UALR and a bachelorâ€™s degree in organizational management from Philander Smith College. He also is a certified Project Management Professional and has completed the Educause Institute Leadership Program.
Nolen was hired by UALR to manage the project management office for the central information technology division. In this capacity, he created and now manages the central IT software development team and assisted in the IT governance structure. He leads project oversight in the implementation of department-wide programs involving information technology.
Anderson noted that these appointments were all strongly supported by persons within the three divisions as well as across campus.
