PTI is a collaborative organization spanning responsibility center lines, so it can muster the skills and talents needed to rapidly address important social, scientific, and scholarly priorities. This is also why PTI refers to centers and labs as being affiliated with rather than part of PTI.
The executive director of the Indiana University Pervasive Technology Institute (PTI) is responsible for:
- Leading PTI as a collaborative organization, in which PTI center and lab directors also serve as associate directors of PTI and participate in governance
- Guiding and supervising the operation of centers and labs that report directly to the executive director
- Leading a program of research and development specific to the executive director’s expertise and interests
