I was the fourth chair of the board of trustees of Internet2.
Internet2 is a consortium of over 200 US universities working in partnership with leading corporations, government agencies, national laboratories, and other institutions of higher learning.
Operating the nation's most advanced network for research and education, Internet2 is a not-for-profit entity that collaborates with its members and with international partners to develop new technologies that are critical to the progress of the Internet.
During my tenure as chair of the board, Internet2 was awarded a major federal stimulus grant to create U.S.-UCAN, a new national project dedicated to using advanced broadband technology to connect community anchor institutions, including public libraries, schools, community colleges, research parks, public safety and health care institutions.
I served on the board from 2005 to 2012 and as chair from 2007 to 2011.
