Jane Cox Graduates from NorthWest Academic Computing Consortium Leadership Development Program

January 09, 2020

Jane Cox recently graduated from the NorthWest Academic Computing Consortium (NWACC) Leadership Development Program. Cox was one of 15 leaders, each from different universities across the Pacific Northwest, who were nominated and selected to participate. Jane said she is honored to have been nominated and selected to participate in this program and looks forward to applying what she has learned.

Last year, as part of the program, Jane attended a week-long camp at a number of different universities across the Northwest. The training focused on how to become a better leader in the computing world, teaching participants how to present and interact at an executive level. The cohort also establishes connections for the participants for life, both professionally and personally. Some participants of past cohorts have even moved into CIO roles.

The program offered learning experiences at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington; Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington; and University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon.

Two other individuals from the University of Idaho have successfully completed the program, including Enterprise Systems Analyst Ben Kirchmeier; and Director, Customer Experience and Engagement, Brian Cox.
