KENNETH C. GREEN is the founding director of The Campus Computing Project, the largest continuing study of the role of computing, eLearning, and information technology in American higher education. Campus Computing is widely cited by both campus officials and corporate executives as a definitive source for data, information, and insight about key information technology planning and policy issues that affect U.S. colleges and universities.
In addition to his work on Campus Computing, Green also serves as the director of the new Digital Fellows Project of the Association of Chief Academic Officers (ACAO). The project is designed to provide provosts and other chief academic officers (CAOs) with critical information, effective resources, and tested strategies to help CAOs and their faculty understand and adopt high quality digital courseware.
An invited speaker at some two dozen academic conferences and professional meetings each year, Green is the author/co-author or editor of 20 books and published research reports and more than 100 articles and commentaries that have appeared in academic journals and professional publications. He is often quoted on higher education and information technology issues in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Inside Higher Ed, and other print and broadcast media. Green's Digital Tweed blog, cited by EdTech Magazine as one of the "50 must read higher ed IT blogs," is published by Inside Higher Ed.
In October 2002 Green received the first EDUCAUSE Award for Leadership in Public Policy and Practice. The EDUCAUSE award cites his work in creating The Campus Computing Project and recognizes his "prominence in the arena of national and international technology agendas, and the linking of higher education to those agendas."
From 1989 to 1994, Green was a senior research associate (1989-1991) and later director (1991-1994) of The James Irvine Foundation Center for Scholarly Technology at the University of Southern California. Prior to his affiliation with USC, Green held concurrent appointments from 1983-1989 as the associate director of UCLA's Higher Education Research Institute and as the associate director the American Council on Education/UCLA Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP), the nation's largest and oldest empirical study of higher education.
A graduate of New College (FL), Green completed his Ph.D. in higher education and public policy at UCLA.
