AVCIT/CIO Larry Levine

Associate Vice Chancellor for IT and CIO Larry Levine joined the University of Colorado Boulder in October 2009. From September 2015 to June 2016 he also served as Interim Vice Chancellor for Infrastructure and Safety.

Since arriving at CU-Boulder, Dr. Levine has engaged the campus in strategic IT planning, formed a new IT governance structure, led the campus-wide digital accessibility initiative, reorganized the central IT organization to be more client focused, strengthened the use of IT in support of pedagogy, and created a faculty-led group to support Boulder’s research computing environment, providing state-of-the-art high performance computing and data management services. The Office of Information Technology (OIT) was the first campus organization to use Service Performance Excellence as a management model. Based on OIT’s success, that model has since been expanded, creating the campus-wide Office for Performance Improvement.

Prior to joining CU-Boulder, Dr. Levine was Associate Dean for IT and Chief Information Officer of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University 2005-2009. While at Harvard, he built a comprehensive IT environment and organization providing a full array of IT services to the faculty, students, and staff of Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences. That environment includes a world-class research computing organization that features a Top-100 supercomputer as part of a local grid and a doctoral level support staff.

At Dartmouth College Dr. Levine was the Associate Provost for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer (1991-2005), Director of Academic Computing (1988-1991), and Director of Social Science Computing (1984-1988).  While at Dartmouth, he led a computing environment that includes one of the first campus-complete wireless networks which won the Educause 2004 Award for Networking Excellence and was a feature article in the October 2002 Wired magazine. Dr. Levine also brought Voice over IP (including mobile VoIP devices) and Video over IP (replacing coax) systems to Dartmouth by 2003.

Earlier in his career at Bloomington Computing Services (1979-1984) at Indiana University Bloomington, he was a statistical programmer, research computing consultant, and manager.

Dr. Levine earned a Ph.D. from the School of Education, Indiana University, Bloomington (1983), where his major focus was on research methodology, statistics, and counseling psychology, and a B.S. in psychology from S.U.N.Y. Stony Brook (1973).
