Two key members of Arizona’s university community have been appointed to a three-year term on the Arizona Technology Council Board of Directors. David B. Bolman is provost of the University of Advanced Technology (UAT) and Stephen Fleming is vice president, strategic business initiatives at The University of Arizona (UA).
Bolman has been instrumental in growing UAT from a single classroom of 13 students into a private college focused on science, technology, education and mathematics that is unique not only to Arizona but also the country. UAT and its community are dedicated to advancing society through students who learn the tools, techniques, concepts and responsibilities of applying technology in ways that improve society. Bolman has researched, written and spoken on the nature of technology as a foundational human force and how to successfully lead innovation.
Fleming joined the UA in February and is charged with leading a new initiative to advance the strengths of the university’s comprehensive research portfolio to industrial partners and external stakeholders. He previously led economic development and entrepreneurship initiatives at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta. In his career, Fleming also has been a senior executive with leadership experience in startups, multinationals and private equity.
