He currently is responsible for overseeing and coordinating all administrative, academic and clinical technology, telecommunications, wide area networking, local area networking, desktop support, IT security, disaster recovery planning, applications training and support, and records management. The directors of information technology at the university’s six schools have a dual reporting relationship to Miller and their deans.
