Ewart promoted to Infrastructure vice president
The University of Idaho promoted Dan Ewart to vice president of Infrastructure Thursday, effective June 21.
Ewart has served UI as the assistant vice president and chief information officer for Information Technology Services since 2012.
The position is a new addition to Staben’s administrative team, stemming from the separation of duties previously reserved for the vice president of finance and administration.
According to a UI communication sent out Thursday, the existing vice president of finance and administration title will change to two positions — vice president of Finance and Ewart’s new position, vice president of Infrastructure.
In Ewart’s new position, he will manage UI’s facilities and real estate, administrative service operations, public safety and security, risk management and information technology.
Ewart came to UI from the University of Wyoming where he was director of Information Services for nearly 10 years. Current Vice President of Finance and Administration Ron Smith resigned from the position in February, citing a want for a career change. He said he has plans to teach at UI’s College of Business and Economics next academic year.
College of Law becomes IALS member
The University of Idaho College of Law has recently joined the International Association of Law Schools (IALS), a private, nonprofit volunteer service organization.
“It’s a chance to collaborate and share ideas with deans and other administrators and faculty members from around the world,” said Mark Adams, UI College of Law dean.
“Legal education is becoming more global … and law schools around the world are facing similar challenges and we can work together on them.”
IALS represents more than 160 law schools and departments and more than 5,000 law faculty members from more than 55 countries.
Adams said he is preparing for a trip to Bogota, Colombia, in relation to IALS, and he’s excited for all of the future possibilities of collaboration.
