Larry Conrad, Carolina’s vice chancellor for information technology and chief information officer for the past five years, is leaving in February to take the same position at California-Berkeley.
Conrad has led Carolina’s multifaceted Information Technology Services organization since February 2008. He has four decades of experience in both corporate and university settings, including Arizona State and Florida State universities, with extensive knowledge of academic and administrative computing.
Under Conrad, the University launched ConnectCarolina, a massive campuswide effort to streamline and integrate the computing systems that manage student information, human resources, payroll and finance. Within the past two years, the student information system has been converted to PeopleSoft, the software underpinning ConnectCarolina, and efforts are under way to convert the human resources, payroll and finance systems.
Chris Kielt will serve as interim vice chancellor and assume the CIO responsibilities until UNC’s next chancellor decides on a permanent successor. Kielt, the associate vice chancellor for administrative systems and business transformation, came to Carolina last fall from Stony Brook University, where he served as CIO.
He has 25 years of higher education administrative experience, including more than two decades at Yale University, where he was deputy CIO overseeing Yale’s ITS application development, client support, systems infrastructure and information security.
