University of Missouri Vice President for Information Systems Ralph Caruso to Retire
Ralph H. Caruso, University of Missouri Vice President for Information Systems, today announced his intention to retire March 31, 2005. Caruso became the University’s first chief information officer and vice president for information systems in 1992 after a long career with IBM.
"My time at the University of Missouri has been exceptionally rewarding," Caruso said. "I have been lucky to have such wonderful colleagues, and I will miss them."
UM President Elson S. Floyd noted that organizations are constantly adapting to take advantage of the latest developments in the field of information technology. He said he will take the occasion of Caruso’s decision to retire to review and redefine the position of UM vice president for information systems.
"Ralph Caruso has been a vital part of the University team, and his tireless record of service as the University’s first chief information officer speaks for itself," President Floyd said. "His expertise and spirited good nature will be greatly missed."
