Toggle, a quarterly business-to-business journal, spoke in-depth with Leonard DeBotton, Senior Vice President, Information Systems and CIO at Berkeley College, about how the College’s pre-pandemic technology preparations set the stage for a smooth transition to remote learning and work.

DeBotton and his Information Systems team kicked into virtual high gear when the pandemic hit in the winter of 2020. “In the early days of the pandemic, we anticipated that help desk calls would require more time to resolve and would be more complex,” DeBotton said. “We proactively adapted and added resources in anticipation of higher demand instead of waiting for complaints.”
