Russ Kaurloto, Clemson Vice President and Chief Information Officer, has been named vice chancellor for information technology and chief information officer at the University of Denver, beginning July 1, 2021.

“Over the past four years, Russ has led our CCIT team as we’ve continued to meet the technological needs of our students, faculty, and staff,” Provost Bob Jones said. “I thank Russ and the entire team in CCIT for providing critical support for the University, especially during the past year through an extended period of remote work and learning.”

During his time at Clemson, Kaurloto was instrumental in helping drive Clemson forward with adopting and implementing new learning and business technologies and supporting processes, as well as working with many areas around campus to adapt technology to the ever-changing business of higher education. He improved cybersecurity and established excellent working relationships with many external partners in both government and the corporate world.

Kaurloto worked closely with Clemson Online, the Emergency Operations Center, and countless others during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure Clemson was able to proactively respond and implement the best possible technology approaches to maintain business and academic continuity.

Prior to Clemson, Kaurloto served in previous senior technology leadership roles at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, the City of Los Angeles, and the University of Southern California.
