Following a nationwide search, WashU IT’s Amy Walter has been named Deputy Chief Information Officer and Associate Vice Chancellor for Research, Clinical and Medical Education Technologies. She assumed the responsibilities of the inaugural position Feb. 1.


Selected for the role following a national search, Walter will continue working closely with Jessie Minton, Vice Chancellor for Technology and Chief Information Officer, and key IT leaders to execute strategic directions and operational priorities across the university.

“Amy Walter has demonstrated transformative leadership, having set the strategy and direction for enterprise applications,” Minton said. “She has established and intentionally built solid relationships based on trust with leaders across our campuses.”
