Mary M. Doyle, who has served in the dual roles of vice president for Information Systems and vice provost for administration at Washington State University since 2002, is now devoting her energy full time to duties in the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President. Effective June 1, she is vice provost for academic planning, budget and resource management.
In her expanded role in the Office of the Provost, Doyle has responsibility for managing academic resources including budget and space, capital coordination, and varied activities related to aligning resource utilization with strategic academic priorities.
“I’m pleased that Mary will be able to devote her energy, talent, and vast experience full-time to academic issues. This change will be a great help in advancing the university’s academic agenda,” said Provost Robert Bates.
“I realized that I was trying to do too much, and each of these important positions has demands that far exceed part-time attention,” Doyle said. “I’m looking forward to my continued work with Provost Bates and his team. I know that President (Elson S.) Floyd will find a stellar new chief information officer or CIO to lead WSU’s technology efforts.”
Doyle joined WSU in 1997 as director of Information Technology. She served in that role until 2001 when then President V. Lane Rawlins created the vice president for Information Systems position. Doyle also served as interim director of WSU Libraries during 2000-2001.
Doyle came to WSU from a position as assistant provost of the College of Letters and Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She earned her bachelor of science degree in computer information systems and an MBA at Arizona State University. She earned a Ph.D. in educational leadership and organizations from UC Santa Barbara.
