This site began with stories about the influence of Pamela Holley-Wilcox as an IT leader at UNL. What's your story? What story can you share that will inspire women in IT and computing?
Pam, thanks for all you have done for the University. Few outside ITS probably know the central role you have played in assuring our campus was properly served by information technology. The best to you in the years ahead. Harvey PerlmanChancellor
Pam is an active advocate for students and faculty. She is a thought leader, people-connector and a vocal guide demonstrating how information technology can best serve the mission of the university. We will miss her forthright leadership and her insight.” Mark AskrenChief Information Officer
Before Pam became an IT professional some 30+ years ago, she was an IT user...and has continued to worry about whether students and faculty are appropriately served... but Pam has always headed off to work each day thinking about how she's going to improve the quality of the services we all depend on. As a faculty member, I've always been grateful for that. Brian WilcoxDirector, Center on Children, Families, and the Law
Pam was my boss when I was a student worker...Pam truly took the time to "Sit With Me"and she and I logged more than a few conversations. She took the time to invest in me personally and professionally, and taught me valuable lessons about my professional life. I appreciate it to this day!

I have worked with Pam for almost 20 years, and have appreciated her perspective on matters during that entire time. My perspective usually is framed upon a technical / engineering point of view, and Pam starts from a completely different basis. Over time, I have learned to anticipate many of the questions she will ask (especially those around user impact), which has helped to soften my otherwise technical approach.
Michael RuhrdanzDirector, Information Technology Services
I have known and worked with Pam for 11 years, and she has always put UNL students, faculty, and staff first in all her work. Pam is an IT leader who never lost sight of the people behind the IT and the people who use the IT.
Heath TuttleDirector, Information Technology Services
It has been a pleasure working with Pam on a variety of projects and committees. She is a successful leader and a great role model for women entering the profession. I'll never forget her advocacy to improve technology for students at UNL. I will certainly miss her companionship.
