In light of the severity of budget cuts impacting the CSU and Cal Poly Pomona, President Michael Ortiz has elected to suspend the search for a new vice president for I&IT. After the retirement of Debra Brum later this summer, Associate Vice President Stephanie Doda will assume leadership of the division as the administrator-in-charge.
“Stephanie has proven to be a terrific leader during her tenure at the university,” Ortiz said. “Her experience within the division and knowledge of campus operations gives me every confidence that she will do an excellent job.”
Doda has worked at Cal Poly Pomona for more than 20 years, first managing the AT&T technical team that installed the campus PBX telephone system. For 10 years, she served as the director of telecommunications and was actively involved in many campus construction projects, including the CLA Building. She also supervised the Y2K Readiness Project, the Human Resource and Finance PeopleSoft Project and the conversion of the Banner Student System to PeopleSoft.
In 2003, she assumed the position of Associate Vice President in I&IT and serves on a number of university committees. Last year, Doda was the division's interim leader for two months while Brum was on medical leave.
Doda holds a master's degree in Business Administration with an emphasis on Information Systems Auditing from Cal Poly Pomona. She received her bachelor's degree in marketing from Southern Methodist University.
