Rich Grossman is the CIO at Plymouth State University. Rich joined the PSU community in February 2012, and has been privileged to lead, and work with, Plymouth’s Information Technology Services (ITS) team. ITS is responsible for supporting academic computing, electronic data security, enterprise data systems and software, the campus communications infrastructure, local software development and integration, client and classroom technology, server operations, and PSU-owned computer management and maintenance.

Rich has over 30 years experience providing technology services to higher education. Prior to PSU, Rich worked for Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts, and Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. Starting as a programmer of curricular tools for the Computer Applications and Mathematics department at the college he attended, Rich has worked as a systems administrator, computer network manager, help desk manager, IT director, and now CIO. A licensed attorney, Rich also teaches Higher Education Policy & Law at PSU.

New Hampshire represents the fourth state Rich has called home, having also lived in Massachusetts, New York, and Connecticut. Rich earned a B.S. in Mass Communications from Emerson College, and for a mid-life crisis – far too pragmatic to purchase a sports car – Rich earned his Juris Doctor from Suffolk University.
