HOLLYWOOD, Florida, July 31, 2007 – Dr. Walt Magnussen, the telecommunications director at Texas A&M University, is the new president of ACUTA, the Association for Communications Technology Professionals in Higher Education.

Magnussen takes office at the close of the 36th annual ACUTA Conference here this week. At the conference, representatives of hundreds of U.S. and Canadian higher education institutions are meeting to explore and discuss communications strategies that can best fulfill their organizations’ missions.

ACUTA is the only national association dedicated to serving the needs of higher education communications technology professionals, representing some 2,000 individuals at 770 institutions.

 “As the communications networks on college and university campuses become both more critical and more complex, ACUTA must maintain its role of supporting its members in achieving their institutions’ strategic missions,” Magnussen said. “With our focus on technology and on networking and information sharing by members, we can remain a vital resource for members. That is my one of my goals as president.”
