More About Burgess, David
I joined GPRC as a Systems Analyst shortly ahead of the Grande Prairie - Fairview merger of July 2009, where I led the transition of our thin clients to the LTSP platform for diskless booting and centralized management. In summer 2010 I helped with the planning and implementation of the student residence wireless project, bringing the college's high speed network to 300 students in residence I served as a member of the Fairview Campus Green Committee and helped with the installation of the new bike racks at the Trades Instruction building.
After GPRC's expansion to include the West Yellowhead campuses and a number of community learning centres, I transfered to the Grande Prairie campus in November 2012, into the newly created position of Information Technology Support Manager, where I managed the help desk and supervised front-line IT support staff on all campuses.
In September 2013 I accepted a one-year secondment to the office of the Vice-President of Administration, in the role of Institutional Research and Planning Officer. In this role I am responsible for providing various programming, financial and enrolment reports to Alberta Enterprise and Advanced Education, as well as the College's Comprehensive Institutional Plan and Annual Report.
My interests include politics, embedded computing, computer networking, consumer and audio electronics, cycling and raquet sports.
