In Q&A, School of Education alumnus discusses new leadership role at DoIT

UW–Madison’s Division of Information Technology (DoIT) recently spotlighted Dominic Ledesma, the inaugural assistant vice provost for culture, climate, and engagement — and a School of Education alumnus — in a Q&A on their website news page.


Ledesma, who earned his PhD from the School of Education’s Department of Leadership and Policy Analysis in 2021, leads the division’s efforts around equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging (EDIB) and will create a new office within the division focused on advancing employee culture, climate, and engagement.

In the interview, Ledesma discusses his leadership style, past accomplishments, and goals — as well as his hobby making maple syrup. Speaking of what excites him as he takes on this new role, he explains that he is interested in exploring how the position “would uniquely contribute to shaping and evolving DoIT’s positive organizational culture and climate.”

He adds that this includes creating spaces where professionals, “feel a genuine sense of connection to one another and their role within our division.”
