ITSS Personnel Changes

Long-term ITSS staff members Tom Nylen and Jay Opela will be laid off this spring to help provide ITSS with a solution to budget retrenchments. Both Tom and Jay volunteered to take layoffs and look forward to early retirements.

Tom Nylen is an ITSS manager, and he will be replaced by Jason Davis. Tom's last day at UMD will be April 18. Jason's new responsibilities will include managing staff who work in student labs, help desk, classroom technology, including interactive television, and maintenance services.

Jay Opela is responsible for our interactive television (ITV) services. Jay's last day at UMD will be June 13. A number of Jay's responsibilities are being shifted to Sarah Paro. Others will be reassigned as we get closer to Jay's last day.

Jason Davis's former responsibilities as ITSS Lab Coordinator have been reassigned to Rick Brill and Mary Olson-Reed. Rick and Mary will retain some of their former duties as they share responsibilities for our student computing services.

ITSS is committed to continued excellent service despite a reduction in our work force. We wish Tom and Jay very happy futures, and we will miss them very much.
