Professional Information

Colby Background History
Joe started at Colby in February 2012 as a Faculty / Staff Support Center Technician. In that role, he was one of the three frontline technicians that assisted with walk-ins, phone calls, and emails primarily from faculty and staff.

In May 2015, he was promoted to a new position, Faculty/Staff Support Center Manager. In this role, he oversaw two full time technicians as they provided support for the faculty and staff. In addition, he was added to an executive support team which supports high level events with the senior staff of the college.

In July 2017, Media Resources, Student Computer Services and the Faculty / Staff Support Center help desks merged into one help desk- now called The Support Center. With the change, he oversees both full time technicians and student workers as it transitions to a one-stop shop for all technology issues for students, faculty, staff, and classrooms.

In March 2018, Joe changed roles to a Desktop Systems Administrator. In this role he is part of a team that is responsible for the effective software lifecycle management and advanced support for Colby’s desktop and portable computing devices. This includes proactively developing, documenting, and maintaining processes and technologies associated with inventory asset management, operating system image creation, installation, configuration, and maintenance of systems.
