Congratulations to Leah Kraus, Interim CIO of ITS, who has accepted the position of Chief Information Officer at North Carolina Central University (NCCU), a position she will assume in February. As CIO at NCCU, she will reunite with Dr. Debra Saunders-White—former Vice Chancellor of ITS—who was recently appointed Chancellor at NCCU. Kraus served as Associate Vice Chancellor under Saunders-White from 2007-11.

During her tenure at UNCW, Kraus has strengthened ITS outreach, communication, customer service, project management, governance and strategic planning efforts. Under her leadership, both she and ITS have received multiple recognitions, including the Center for Digital Government's Cybersecurity Leadership and Innovation Award, honorable mention in the 2011 Digital Education Achievement Awards, and inclusion in case study articles for both Cisco and Skillsoft. ITS applauds Kraus on her new position and wishes her much success.
