Murton elected president of national association

The National Association of Educational Procurement (NAEP), the nationwide organization focused exclusively on procurement in higher education, has announced the election of Rosey Murton, director of procurement services at Wake Forest, to the office of president, effective immediately. Installation of officers occurred at a ceremony held during the association’s 96th Annual Meeting in Reno, Nevada, March 26-29.

Prior to joining Wake Forest, Murton was executive director of the Illinois Public Higher Education Cooperative, housed at the University of Illinois, where she served as director of university sourcing and assistant director of strategic procurement. She has also worked as a contract portfolio manager for the State of Illinois and in the private sector.

In addition to serving on the NAEP Board of Directors for the past three years, Ms. Murton served on the association’s Professional Development Committee and presented programs at both its national and Great Lakes Region meetings.

Murton graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a B.A. and MBA and has earned the professional certifications CPPO and CPPB.

Hannah Inzko named director of academic technology

This is a guest post from Information Systems and the Teaching and Learning Collaborative:

Information Systems and the Teaching and Learning Collaborative are pleased to announce that Ms. Hannah Inzko has accepted the position of Director of Academic Technology at Wake Forest University.

Graduating from The Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelors of Arts in Film and Video Production, Hannah started her career at The Pennsylvania State University where she served as the Media Commons Manager, overseeing the budget and operations of 28 physical locations spread out over 24 commonwealth campuses. In 2014, Hannah accepted a position as the Director of Learning Innovation and Faculty Engagement at the University of Miami reporting directly to the Assistant Vice President of Academic Technologies, where she oversaw a team of Senior Instructional Designers and IT Specialists. Additionally, during her tenure at the University of Miami, she continued her education, earning a Master of Science in Education in Community and Social Change.

Hannah’s experience in higher education instructional design and multimedia aligns with the institutional need for a passionate leader in academic technology to enrich academic technologies and support services. During the interview process, Hannah stood out as a positive and enthusiastic individual, demonstrating the skill set needed to forge relationships with schools, departments, and faculty members throughout the Wake Forest campus community.

In addition to working closely with Information Systems, Hannah will work in collaboration with the Teaching and Learning Collaborative, The Office of Online Learning, ZSR Library staff, and the Instructional Technology Group (ITG) to enrich educational technologies and the support services that enhance teaching, learning and research across our campus community.
