Helped author and deliver IS&T proposal presentations to numerous groups and constituents throughout Nebraska. Assisting Dr. R.B. Flynn Director of IS&T and Special Assistant to the Chancellor I helped author 16 different IS&T presentations that were presented over 100 times to a wide variety of groups throughout the State. These presentation described and justified the IS&T academic programs proposed the organization of the College helped establish academic relationships with business and industry helped establish relationships with the College of Engineering and the NU system and estimated funding and resource needs of the building that would house the two Colleges and the PKI. (1995-1997).

Groups and individuals presented to included: Nebraska State Legislature and selected senators U.S. Congressional Senators and Representatives (Sen. R. Kerrey Sen. J.J. Exon Sen. C. Hagel Rep. J. Christensen and staff) the Governor (Gov. B. Nelson) University of Nebraska executive administration and Board of Regents the Nebraska Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education Chambers of Commerce Public School Districts (Omaha Westside Millard etc.) the Omaha Mayor's office the board of the Applied Information Management Institute board meetings of regional companies (Union Pacific OPPD Inacom Mutual of Omaha Kiewit First National Bank etc.) Rotary Clubs (Downtown West North Northwest Suburban etc.) and other groups and individuals. (1995-1997).

21. Collaboratively designed a curriculum and non-credit courses in interactive computer multimedia that proposed for UNO ISQA/CMIT UNO College of Continuing Studies or NBDC. Worked with CMIT faculty NBDC staff and AIM institute in this effort. (Fall 1994-Spring 1995).

Attendee and participant at professional conferences 1993-present: ? Infotec Annual Conference (Omaha) ? ICIS (International Conference on Information Systems) ? DSI (Decision Sciences Institute) ? SWDSI (Southwestern DSI) ? AMCIS (Association Conference on Information Systems) ? FMA (Financial Management Association).

Helped author the IS&T Academic Plan the fundamental plan that lead to IS&T building space projections funding projections and the $52 Million (expanded to $70 Million in 2000) technology building design. Drafted the College of IS&T Academic Plan. Assembled the diverse Plan elements and revised them with selected faculty of the ISQA and CS department. The Plan outlines the core IS&T curriculum describes the undergraduate and graduate majors in ISQA and CS and sets forth the requirements for justifying construction of a new building to house the new College. The Plan integrates with the University of Nebraska College of Engineering Academic Plan. The plans were used by the University of Nebraska administration to justify partial Nebraska State funding ($17 Million) of the project to the Legislature Worked with the building architects (DLR Group) and their technology specialists extrapolating enrollment projections to space and resource requirements. Worked with DLR and selected UNO administrators to produce the building layout including classrooms laboratories facilities faculty offices and other elements. The design team visited Stanford University University of California-Berkeley and other institutions as we collected academic and design information. The Academic Plan was the basis for the current IS&T degree catalog and the building (called the Peter Kiewit Institute of Science and Technology) is a $70 MM state-of ?the-art structure that houses both the College of IS&T and the College of Engineering and Technology. (1995-1997).

Helped Build a Multimedia classroom used by IS&T in the UNO College of Fine Arts. With Prof. Gary Day Chair of Art and Design created a Multimedia classroom as a resource for ISQA GUI Design students and Art Computer Design. The lab is a shared resource between the Colleges of Fine Arts and IS&T meaning that classes and students from both colleges have access to and receive instruction in this multimedia facility. The lab/classroom contains 10 Windows NT workstations with digital (?piano') MIDI keyboard and computer graphics animation sound and digital music software. The lab also has video capture and editing hardware and software. (1998-1999).

Arranged Cognos Executive training for UNO faculty. I arranged for faculty training on the Cognos suite of data-warehousing and data-mining tools held at MHA Software Associates in Omaha free of charge to UNO faculty. (1999-2001).

Invited Lecturer/Instructor at OPPD training for executives. I presented lecturers on strategic-level information technology Internet technology and Electronic Commerce to mid-level and senior-level managers at Omaha Public Power District. (1998-2000).

Placed UNO graduate students for independent study field projects in local Nebraska companies. (1999). ? At OPPD I arranged for UNO graduate students Kevin Liang and Sayuri Aoki to work with Deeno Boosalis the OPPD Director of Strategic Planning researching the effects of deregulation on products of power companies. The implications of deregulation for OPPD are important since it itself will become deregulated in the near future. ? At World Media Inc. a Electronic Commerce subsidiary of the Omaha World Herald I arranged for Priyanka Dubey and Ernest Gauss to work on an EC project in the field. They are working with Mark Hoeger the lead content developer at WM to develop and implement customer requirements.

Delivered Numerous Year 2000 Lectures and Workshops. Delivered numerous lectures for Federal grant won by Nebraska Business Development Centers. Lectures and workshops on Y2K presented to various groups of business executives engineers and professionals: Omaha Chamber of Commerce Sarpy County Chamber of Commerce Army Corps of Engineers Northwest Rotary Cosmopolitan Club of Omaha and other groups. (1999).

Won the First National Center Web Site Project for IS&T Students. This is a visible activity requested by the University of Nebraska Peter Kiewit Institute. This Web project potentially represented a series of projects for UNO/IS&T students that relate to the construction of the tallest building (44 stories) in this portion of the Midwest.
