Interim Director Named
For Media Development Center
MAILED: June 28, 2001

         EAU CLAIRE — Jim Lowe, director of Computing and Networking Services at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, will serve as the interim director of the Media Development Center. He will take over for the current director, Bob Fuller, who is retiring at the end of this month.
         Upon the recommendation of Margaret Dwyer, associate vice chancellor and chief information officer, Provost and Vice Chancellor Ronald Satz announced the one-year appointment, effective July 1. The appointment is concurrent with Lowe’s position as director of CNS, which he has held since 1999. Satz said he will conduct a search during the coming year for a classroom services manager, a key responsibility of Fuller’s. Burt Spangler will continue to provide assistance in this area while a replacement is sought.
         The Media Development Center supports faculty and academic staff throughout the instructional process, beginning with instructional and curricular assistance and continuing through classroom support: facilities design, operations and maintenance and repair of classroom equipment. The MDC also provides communications and technology support across the campus.
         Satz also announced that with the retirement this month of Richard Dirks from the Information and Technology Management unit, copyright issues will be handled by McIntyre Library staff. Patents and other intellectual property issues will be the responsibility of the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs.
