Calvin Tong joins CIS

Effective January 21, 2009 Calvin Tong will serve as User Support Group Leader at CIS.

Calvin comes to Harvey Mudd from UCLA, where he supervised the Help Desk and the support technicians at the Center for Digital Humanities. His group there had a well deserved reputation for outstanding teamwork and high quality service.

Calvin received his Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering from UCLA.

As you will no doubt remember from previous news items, the Fletcher Jones Foundation has given us a grant that allows for the creation of two new positions in educational technology. Elizabeth Hodas is starting as the group leader for the new educational technology unit and Calvin is taking over from her in User Support. Take a look at the CIS Organization Chart to see how we have set this up.

During the search process Calvin received the usual Harvey Mudd grilling during a series of campus interviews in early December. I would like to thank the following people for their help with the search:

Karen Angemi
Peter Osgood
Thyra Briggs
Gerry VanHecke
Joe DeBlasio
Patricia Wang
Christine Alvarado
Cynthia Beckwith
Andrew Dorantes
Chris Stone
David Harris
Willie Drake
Tim Buccheim
Claire Connelly
Jake Liu
Liz Baughman
All of the CIS staff.

Please join us in welcoming Calvin to HMC!
