Technology Services consists of Client Support and Educational Technology Services, Enterprise Information Services, Network and Server Systems, and the Project Management Office.
Josie Lomax has joined the Technology Services staff as Business Analyst in the Project Management Office. She previously served a two year stint as Technology Coordinator for Career and Employment Services.
Josie has a B.A. in History and a Master’s in Teaching from Puget Sound, which she used in teaching middle school science and math. Her other career adventures include jaunts as an English language teacher in Japan through the JET Program and a low-voltage electrician.
Josie’s hobbies have primarily been (unsuccessfully) learning the banjo, leading raid groups in online video games, and semi-reluctant trips to the YMCA. Josie says she’s always up for a chat about education, social justice, or reality television and is grateful that her husband, Jeremy, tolerates her notoriously bad taste in music.
Welcome to TS, Josie!

Chief Information Officer William Morse was recently interviewed by University Business magazine to provide insight on selecting the right cloud computing partner. In the article, Morse, who has a law degree from Emory University, notes that during the contract negotiation phase, “Everything must be negotiated. Spending the proper amount of time at this stage is key to the university protecting itself.” In his time at Puget Sound, Morse has lead the successful multi-year effort to implement Oracle’s PeopleSoft Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to replace the previous legacy, homegrown solution.
