Arshele Stevens Chief Information Officer, City Colleges of Chicago As Chief Information Officer of the City Colleges of Chicago, I provide the strategic and operational leadership to fulfill the mission of providing CCC with an innovative technology environment that will enable and empower faculty and staff to improve teaching and learning. This mission provides the foundation to support the District’s reinvention goals: preparing students to move into well-paying jobs, transferring into 4-year colleges and advancing in their careers. Prior to joining CCC, I was the CIO for Chicago Public Schools where I focused on technology cost efficiencies, the introduction of modern student administration systems and technology expansion including 21st century tools for teachers, students and administrators. I have led infrastructure merger and acquisition efforts for the Securities division of Wells Fargo, (formerly Wachovia), as wells as managed the Configuration Management Department for CNA Insurance. I hold certificates through the Project Management Institute, Six Sigma, and Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL).
