Clifford Lynch, Adjunct Professor in the UC Berkeley School of Information and Executive Director of the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) was recently awarded the 2005 EDUCAUSE Leadership Award in Public Policy and Practice. The Leadership Award is the highest individual recognition offered by EDUCAUSE and acknowledges and celebrates leadership in higher education information technology management.
A prolific writer and speaker, Lynch is a leading analyst of technology trends in education, libraries, publishing, and cultural arenas, and an advisor to organizations and leaders involved in those fields. For over 20 years Dr. Lynch has been at the leading edge of making networked information available to faculty, students, and the general public, with particular attention to the policy implications of technical issues.
EDUCAUSE is making two $1,000 contributions in Cliff Lynch's name, to the School of Information at the University of California, Berkeley, and to the Paul Evan Peters Fellowship administered by the Coalition for Networked Information. The Peters fellowship assists students pursuing graduate studies in the information sciences or librarian ship who demonstrate intellectual and personal qualities consistent with those of Paul Evan Peters, CNI's founding executive director.
