Working together with the college community, the IT division assists with technology initiatives, planning, securing resources, exploring new technologies applications and implementing technology projects.
Also with Mr. Glaser’s guidance and direction, the PROD office provides research design, evaluation, and planning services, as well as exploring new opportunities to bring best practices to the college. The PROD office helps to support the campus community with strategic planning, institutional accreditation, Baldrige practices, learning outcomes assessment services, and institutional and external reporting needs.
In addition to his IT and PROD responsibilities, Mr. Glaser also provides leadership to the college’s fundraising campaign efforts. Most recently, he was instrumental in the successful conclusion of a $4 million campaign to raise funds for student scholarship and endowments.
Mr. Glaser chairs an external Technology Advisory Board, which is comprised of local technology business executives who provide input on technology initiatives, educational programming, and securing resources.
Mr. Glaser holds an associate of applied science degree in instructional technology from Alfred State College, a bachelor of science in instructional design from Empire State College and a master of science in instructional design and evaluation from Syracuse University.
