The University of Arkansas has appointed David Bruce its deputy chief information officer and an associate chief information officer (CIO) for information technology (IT) enterprise infrastructure systems.
Bruce has held numerous positions with the university over the past 15 years including network engineer, director of campus networks and most recently associate CIO for campus networks.
