William Gilligan

Vice President, Information Technology

Bill heads Information Technology (IT), which is comprised of several talented teams: User Services, Networking and Telecommunications, and Enterprise Systems. In addition to IT, Bill oversees Media Technologies and Production (MTP, formerly TRF) and WERS, the College’s acclaimed radio station. He has learned, during 30 years at Emerson as faculty and administrator, that things work best when he keeps himself and other obstacles out of the paths of the host of much-smarter colleagues that he is privileged to work with in IT, TRF, and WERS. Bill and his wife, Bev, live on the NH seacoast and enjoy skiing, golf, kayaking, and following the adventures of five grandchildren.
