Sam Scozzafava Jr. G’12 Announces Retirement; Eric Sedore to Serve as Interim Chief Information Officer
Samuel “Sam” Scozzafava Jr. G’12, vice president and chief information officer, and a longtime member of the Syracuse University community, today announced he will retire from the University after more than 15 years of service. Eric Sedore, chief technology officer, will serve as interim vice president for information technology and chief information officer (CIO), reporting directly to Chancellor Kent Syverud. Scozzafava will conclude his time at the University in July.
“Sam has been steadfast in his commitment to advancing information technology at the University, has worked tirelessly to support the academic and research enterprise and has consistently advocated for enhancements that improve the student experience, inside and outside the classroom,” says Steve Bennett, senior vice president for international programs and academic operations and chief of staff for academic affairs. “I appreciate his leadership and service and wish him well as he begins his retirement.”
Scozzafava joined the University in 2007 and has served in several management-level positions with the University’s Information Technology Services, including manager of the student administration application development team and director of enterprise application systems. Prior to his appointment as CIO, he served as the University’s associate chief information officer for administrative systems.
“I have enjoyed my time working with, learning from and supporting our students, faculty and staff,” says Scozzafava. “I am especially proud of my ITS colleagues’ efforts to enhance digital inclusion, advance information technology in support of the research enterprise and ensure consistency in teaching and learning during the pandemic. I will be forever grateful for my time at Syracuse University.”
