Franklin College has announced the appointment of Andrew Rosner as director of digital fluency at the college.
Digital fluency is the aptitude to effectively and ethically interpret information, discover meaning, design content, construct knowledge, and communicate ideas in a digitally connected world. Franklin College is ramping up its efforts in digital fluency to better prepare its students for the workforce after graduation.
Rosner, the first ever to hold the position at the college, is responsible for leading the implementation of the college’s strategic digital fluency initiative. His primary role is establishing connections to people, knowledge and experiences in digital fluency that will enhance the strong liberal arts education at Franklin and improve students’ digital fluency skills and career outcomes.
“As a product of a liberal arts institution himself, Andrew possesses both the technical aptitude and interpersonal skills that will allow him to forge partnerships with local businesses while also building relationships with our faculty, staff, and students as he develops programming to enhance students’ digital fluency,” said Kristin Flora, the college’s acting vice president for academic affairs and dean of the college. “We are delighted to welcome him to campus and support him in this important work.”
Rosner comes to the college from the Mark Cuban Center for Sports Media and Technology at Indiana University where he served as its director since 2015. He is also the owner of Everlong Digital, a firm that develops digital marketing strategies for small businesses, and educates and coaches clients on strategic digital marketing and social media tools. Rosner earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Kinesiology from DePauw University and a Master of Science degree in sports marketing and management from Indiana University.
“I am grateful to Dr. Flora and President Prather for the opportunity to join the Franklin College community,” said Rosner. “I have long admired Franklin College’s commitment to a transformative liberal arts education. I look forward to working with faculty, staff, alumni and students to build upon the Franklin College experience by not only preparing students for the ever-evolving workforce of today, but by also challenging students to be the industry leaders of tomorrow.”
Rosner began working at the college on February 8, 2021.
