Director of Academic Computing Retires
Lynn Aulick (left) retired in June as director of academic computing and network administrator. Aulick came to Transylvania in 1993 and has been the guiding force behind much of Transy’s new technology over the past 16 years.
Recently he oversaw a move toward the utilization of open source software on campus, which reduced the cost of the programs used while increasing flexibility, security, and stability.
“If you think about how our network and use of technology has exploded during the time he’s been here, you can appreciate the work that has been involved,” said information technology director Jason Whitaker ’97, who also worked with Aulick as a work-study student at Transy.
“I have always been awed by his work ethic and dedication to faculty, staff, and students,” Whitaker said. “His efforts and personality will be sorely missed.”
