As head of Information Technology, Sterling will guide and oversee the development and implementation of a strategic technology plan. He will begin his new role on June 17.

“We are very pleased to welcome Dwane to Skidmore College,” said President Philip A. Glotzbach. “His expertise and extensive experience are precisely what we need to keep up with the rapid changes in technology and tackle myriad challenges.”

Sterling said, “I am delighted to join the Skidmore community. I look forward to working in collaboration with academic departments, offices and other administrative units to develop and manage an efficient and robust information system and related services in support of Skidmore’s mission and priorities.”

Sterling joins Skidmore from Adirondack Health Institute in Glens Falls, where he is the director of technology and information security officer. He previously held other senior positions in information technology and information services, including manager of information services and senior project manager at Albany Medical Center and College, and business intelligence systems analyst at Golub Corporation in Schenectady.

At Adirondack Health Institute, Sterling was the strategist and architect behind the institute’s first information services and information technology security infrastructure, which required the creation of an 18-month roadmap for housing sensitive healthcare data and protecting network resources. He also oversaw all IT, security and telecommunications projects and initiatives, including future planning, budgets and contracts.

Sterling holds an undergraduate degree in industrial engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York, and certifications in project management and IT service management. He succeeds Bill Duffy, who is starting a new role as senior strategic technology adviser.
