As Provost Wickert said
"Councilors develop knowledge that is used to educate fellow
employees, and encourage collaboration between departments through
their new connections. This communication, collaboration and sharing
of information benefits the entire University." See more in his

compensation, grievance process management, risk management, and

and Labor Relations is available on their website.
Andy Almquist, Systems
Analyst II, IT Services
Andy joined the
security team in 2013. His constant drive for personal development is
an impressive and welcome attribute. The internet can be a scary
place; from hackers and predators to evil doers and thieves.
Information security employees assist the university community with
recovery efforts when that "darkness" enters online lives.
Digital forensic investigations are time consuming and labor
intensive, requiring long periods of data acquisition followed by
detailed analysis. Sensing the urgency of these matters and because
he truly cares about the "customers" he serves, Andy works
expeditiously for resolution. Read more here.
