Instructional Support Manager
Information & Library Services
110 Russell Street


Lee joined the Information and Library Services Team at Bates College in January 2001 as the Manager of Help Desk Services. During his tenure at the IT Help Desk, Lee was responsible for providing troubleshooting assistance to members of the Bates College Community as well as providing leadership to the IT Help Desk, and to its team of outstanding and customer focused professional and student staff.

In February 2011, Lee began to transition away from his passion of IT Help Desk Operations and began to focus his other talents of technology training and instruction to develop and lead an IT Training Program for Information and Library Services. Today, Lee is the Instructional Technology Manager for Information and Library Services at Bates College. He is responsible for the development and execution of IT Training and Learning opportunities for the Bates College Community.

Lee graduated from Thomas College in Waterville, Maine with a BS in Computer Information Systems along with his MBA. After graduating from Thomas, Lee worked for a software development company that specialized in workers compensation tracking software as a Technical Support Specialist. After working with that company for several years, Lee furthered his career by working for a nonprofit and then later in banking as a Help Desk Team Leader.

Lee resides in Portland, Maine with his partner Brian and his daughter. When he’s not at Bates, Lee enjoys spending time with his family and friends, day trips, taking in what Portland, Maine has to offer, spending time at the beach in the summer and vacationing to warm destinations during the winter.
