Assistant Director of Information Technology Services
Kara McElwrath enjoys her job where she gets to work with just about everyone with a connection to UIS. Working for ITS means that she helps students as well as faculty and staff who are having trouble with their computers or other technology. Kara and her team come up with ideas to ‘upgrade’ the university with technology, such as the USB charging stations for students. To keep current, Kara will sometimes sit in on classes or informational sessions about technology; as well as teach a class herself. Along with all of this, Kara also enjoys educating students on the resources UIS provides at the university’s preview days and orientations for incoming students.
Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
