Ethan Benatan Named NITLE Fellow

Dr. Ethan Benatan, vice president for information technology and CIO, was named a National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education Fellow in October 2012.

Dr. Benatan has published and presented widely through EDUCAUSE, the Association for Computing Machinery, the Consortium of Liberal Arts Colleges, Academic Commons and the American International Consortium of Academic Libraries. He currently serves as department editor for the New Horizons column of EDUCAUSE Review, as co-leader of the small college constituent group, and as a member of the Advisory Group on Enterprise Information Systems and Service. A recipient of the National Science Foundation Predoctoral Fellowship, he received his Ph.D. in computational biology from the University of Pittsburgh in 1999 for work in the areas of artificial intelligence and three-dimensional protein structure.

Prior to Marylhurst University, Dr. Benatan held positions at Reed College, Duquesne University, the University of Pittsburgh and Brookhaven National Laboratory. He is a Fellow of the American Leadership Forum (Oregon chapter) and a graduate of the Frye Institute.

NITLE Fellows provide broad analysis, strategic insight, encouragement and perhaps a little provocation to the liberal arts community. Hailing from both within and outside higher education, these thought leaders connect NITLE and its members to broad understandings of digital technology and its impact, pointing to ways both can be understood. They help NITLE keep an eye on the big picture, revealing paths towards a strong future for liberal education and providing critical support to the NITLE mission.

Other NITLE Fellows include Brent D. Glass, director emeritus of the Smithsonian's National Museum for American History; Alan Kay, one of the earliest pioneers of object-oriented programming, personal computing and graphical user interfaces; Fred Mednick, founder of Teachers Without Borders; Tracy Mitrano, director of IT policy and Institute for Computer Policy and Law at Cornell University; and Thomas A. Warger, who served as CIO at Bryn Mawr College.
