Pay IT Forward - Thank an IT Colleague Today!

September 17, 2014

A message from Larry Conrad, AVC-IT & CIO

Dear Campus IT Community,

Today, I would like to thank all of you for helping to reimagine IT, by changing how we work together as the campus IT community, and ultimately, improving our collective work environment and how we provide services to the campus. In recognition of this effort, the Office of the CIO and the IT Leadership Group are sponsoring the IT Appreciation Program.

Through the IT Appreciation Program you can easily thank an IT colleague and spread recognition for the work they are doing.

How it works:

  • You will receive a thank you card and a $10 gift card to give to the person you’d like to appreciate.
  • Your note of recognition will be passed along to the recipient’s supervisor and the IT Leadership Group, so the leaders of the organization can see our shining stars.
  • We'll feature these appreciations on the UC Berkeley Kudos page and on the Technology@Berkeley website.

Thank an IT colleague today!

Please direct questions about this program to Clarissa Fermin, OCIO Business Analyst at

Pay IT Forward is open to all IT staff across campus. I encourage you to take part in this program, and I look forward to participating along with you.


Larry Conrad
Associate Vice Chancellor - IT and CIO
