“Regardless of the nature of the tasks, patience and excellence are always found in Nathan’s work,” said Shu Schiller, associate professor and chair of the Department of Information Systems and Operations Management.

Seim’s mastery of supporting technologies allows faculty to concentrate on their research and has saved the college from investing in outside expertise.

In addition, he manages the IT infrastructure in the college and works with CaTS on networking, hardware and software installation and maintenance. He also coordinates events and visitations at the college and prepares labs for student, staff and faculty use.

His “dedication for excellence in managing all aspects of IT and working with students, faculty, staff and administrators demonstrates the true meaning of the word,” said Schiller. “The most important aspect of Nathan’s strength is the exact word — excellence.”
