Paul Bishop, Ph.D., Santa Barbara City College's vice president of information, received the Technology Leadership Award for 2013 from the Technology, Research and Information Systems Division of the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office and the Board of Governors of the California Community College System.

Dr. Bishop was recognized for “extraordinary effectiveness, influence, diplomacy, and career achievement within the field of higher educational technology management on both individual campuses and the greater California Community College System.”

He was cited for his leadership role at SBCC on several local initiatives, including Wireless Implementation, Blackboard Transact, Document Management, Video Conferencing and, most recently, the successful deployment of a VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure).

At the state level, Dr. Bishop has served on numerous technology committees and locally he is a founding member of the Santa Barbara Chief Information Officers (CIO) group.

He has worked at SBCC since 2005.

“Paul has not only been at the forefront of this effort at SBCC but he has assumed a significant role statewide in contributing to and shaping the manner in which technology is used to advance and further the mission of the community colleges," SBCC President Lori Gaskin said. "We are fortunate to benefit from Paul's vision, leadership, commitment, and understanding of the impact that technology can have in strengthening and supporting the teaching/learning process.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
