Maurer has worked for Mizzou since 2006 and previously served as director of undergraduate studies for the IT Program. He also serves as Director of the Interactive Digital Environments Lab.
In his new role, Maurer said he hopes to further build the IT Program, including its online course offerings, while developing emerging areas and supporting IT faculty initiatives.
