Ravi Pendse, vice president for information technology and chief information officer at Wichita State University, has been named vice president for computing and information services at Brown University.

He will begin his duties at Brown on Sept. 1.

A specialist in computer networking and information technology in higher education, Pendse has served in a number of information technology areas, from library systems to digital classroom design and comprehensive campus IT planning.

He is a Cisco Fellow and tenured full professor in Wichita State's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Pendse regularly teaches courses and has won awards for teaching excellence, including the Academy for Effective Teaching Award.

As vice president for information technology and chief information officer at WSU since 2011, Pendse has led a number of successful interdepartmental collaborations that have developed a broad implementation of IT resources on campus.

Wichita State became 100 percent wireless in August 2007, connecting all academic and administrative buildings and residence halls. Pendse also led a faculty task force that developed IT-equipped classrooms and standardized the user interface.

"Ravi has great talent, and while I very much hate to lose him, Brown University is a world class university that obviously has recognized his ability," Wichita State President John Bardo said. "It also should be noted that Ravi's Ph.D. is from WSU, so one of our graduates will now assume a major role in an Ivy League university. All of us at WSU wish him well and look forward to seeing his career continue to blossom."
