Alan Candiotti was a long time math faculty member, and from 1994 until his death in 2013 also served as Assistant Vice President for University Technology. His impact on Drew’s technology program was substantial; as a faculty member he was one of the key implementers of the Computer Initiative in 1984; he oversaw the installation of Drew’s first local area networks in the late 1990s; supported numerous initiatives for faculty innovation and staff technology development; and led University Technology in the Drew 360 implementation. He was also a valued leader and mentor to the entire University Technology staff, led numerous initiatives for the University at the executive level, and was universally recognized by students, faculty, staff and administration as a voice of wisdom about all matters in the University.
The Alan Candiotti Fund for Innovation in Technology and Education is established in memory of Dr. Alan Candiotti, in recognition of his legacy of leadership at Drew, his enthusiastic commitment to innovation in the integration of technology and the liberal arts, and his longstanding dedication to his students and colleagues. The Fund is distributed to faculty and staff members in support of innovative technology projects that improve the quality of instruction and enhance learning opportunities and experiences for Drew students.
Improvement of the quality of instruction and/or enhancement of learning opportunities for Drew students must be the basis of each project. Ideas can encompass curricular or co-curricular activities, and in some cases be related to administrative areas. Fund budgets can be used for hardware, software, services, student employment, and a stipend/honorarium for the applicant.
