Paul Suttles Systems Administrator
Paul serves as Systems Administrator for the Center for Teaching and Learning.
His main task is to maintain and develop the variety of information systems used throughout the unit and to facilitate the use of new and developing technology in a way that is beneficial to the stated goal and mission statement of CTL. These responsibilities include oversight and maintenance of a mixed-platform work and server environment, a high-speed video production network for CTL's media services, and acting as the main campus network liaison for the department. In addition, Paul acts as the consultant for all IT related purchases for the department and is tasked with making sure that employees have the tools and IT resources they need to be successful and productive while keeping CTL on the leading edge of instructional technology.
Paul also has a hand in maintaining and developing CTL's online presence through various content management systems. From day-to-day site edits to CMS upgrades and maintenance of a number of web sites that are the culmination of a partnership between CTL and other departments on campus, Paul deals directly with staff and faculty within CTL and across campus to keep CTL's online presence organized and up-to-date.
In the early spring of 2016, Paul was tasked with handling a large portion of the technical aspects and purchasing for the newly built Science Learning Center on UGA's South Campus. He coordinated with other departments using the SLC to purchase desktop computers and peripheral devices that would be used in the building. He also managed the installation of computers and software in two SCALE UP rooms in the SLC.
Paul has 15+ years of experience in his role at CTL. He began with the unit in the summer of 2003 working full time as an IT support contact through Campus Information Technology Partnerships (CITP), then a unit of EITS. In the spring of 2013, he joined CTL officially and took on the role of Systems Administrator for the department.
Paul’s interests away from CTL include photography, boxing, reading, woodworking, hiking, local music and following Georgia Bulldog athletics.
