Scott C. Hughes
Scott C Hughes is the Chief Information Officer for Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA. He received his Under-Graduate degrees from Rutgers University and his Graduate degree from New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business. After his sixteen-year career in the U.S. Army, Scott decided it was time for a change, and came back to New Jersey where he began his civilian career as an Accountant with Kinney Parking Systems in Manhattan, NYC. During that time, Scott initiated a project to automate Kinney’s parking lots. That is when he discovered his love of all things technical; he "Crossed to the IT side" and never looked back.

Prior to Moravian College, Scott worked for Centenary College and Beacon College as Chief Information Officer. He is a self professed Fiscal Conservative at heart, wrapped in a Geek shell.

Neal is focused on immersing himself into the unique environment every school district, university or college he works with.

Today’s students have higher expectations of what wired and wireless networks should provide to support their research for classes and their social interactions while at college. All colleges face the fact that upgrading networks is now a strategic decision that directly affects the retention of existing students and recruitment of new students. Moravian College did just that.

Attend this webinar to learn how to:

  • Create a unified network that can support your strategic directions (i.e. Moravian College chose an all Macbook Pro network)
  • Improve wired and wireless access everywhere on campus to match expectation
  • Provide high quality data, video and multimedia communications at any time
  • Attract students by offering an advanced wired and wireless network infrastructure

Register for this webinar if you believe that higher education needs a new education environment in which everyone has the same tools and access to the same experience regardless of where they are on campus. The classroom walls are totally removed with the availability of teaching, learning and collaboration anywhere on campus, anytime it’s appropriate.
