Calif State University, Chico
Academic Technology Officer

Kathy Fernandes has been a member of DET/CHE since the late 1990’s when she became the Director of Academic Technologies (DAT) at CSU Chico. She led the DETCHE Conference in 2005 held at UC Riverside. Was that really 15 years ago already? After working at Chico State for 25 years, Kathy managed a variety of system-wide projects for Academic Technology Services in the CSU Office of the Chancellor working closely with the 23 campus DATs. In 2019, Kathy returned to Chico State as the Academic Technology Officer responsible for online education, academic technology strategic planning, and leading faculty support and development integrating technology into the curriculum. Certainly during this time of COVID, the primary focus is supporting faculty success in teaching remotely.
