U of M Welcomes New Vice Presidents for Advancement, IT Divisions

Bartlett (top) and Hurley (bottom)The University of Memphis has appointed a new Vice President for Advancement, Dr. Robert P. Bartlett, and a new VP/Chief Information Officer, Dr. Douglas Hurley.

Bartlett comes to the U of M from the University of Rochester, where he served as Dean for Advancement with the College of Arts, Sciences and Engineering since 1998. In that capacity, he managed the areas of fundraising, alumni and parent relations, community outreach, and marketing communications. At the U of M, Bartlett will oversee the areas of development, marketing, and alumni relations.

Bartlett has 20 years of advancement experience in higher education and holds doctoral and master's degrees from Cornell and a bachelor's degree from Stetson University in Florida. He was also a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Chicago.

Hurley comes to the University from Gartner Inc., the world's leading technology research and consulting firm, where he was director of University Relations and a research analyst in the Higher Education Technology Strategies group. He has considerable experience working with higher education leaders and boards as well as IT professional staff and faculty to help them understand technology trends and directions and how technology can be applied for strategic advantage.

Before joining Gartner, Hurley served the University of Kentucky in a variety of roles, ultimately as associate vice president for Information Systems.

He holds a doctorate in higher education administration and planning from Kansas State University, a master's degree from the University of Vermont (where he was also a teaching fellow), and a bachelor's degree from Miami University (Ohio). He has also studied at the Wharton School's Aresty Institute of Executive Education.

Both Bartlett and Hurley take office July 14.
