Hi. My name is Michael Enyeart (pronounced "in-yert") I began my telecommunication career in the US Army Signal Corps from 1972-75 where I repaired tropospheric scatter microwave, multiplexing, and encryption systems. I joined the Indiana University (Bloomington) professional staff on Halloween 1977. I have worked as a television broadcast engineer for WTIU and WTTV, manager of the Kelley School of Business computing center, manager of campus data communications, and technical advisor to the IT AVP. During that time, I helped start up CICnet (regional IP network), continued strategic planning of university data networks, and managed a joint venture with IBM, called the Electronic School District project.
Around 1990, I became assistant director for university telecommunications and then assistant director for campus communication (telephone) services. Today I work as a senior technical advisor at Indiana University Information Technology Services where IU operates world-class networks through the Global Network Operations Center. My current professional interest is IP network convergence, endpoint evolution, cloud computing, content management, strategic planning, and emergency management. I contributed to many iniatives, such the ten year $170M network plan (2008), campus cellular project, and emergency communications. I'm 39 years into a 40 year career at IU and still having a blast.
Education, memberships, and other skills
I have a BA in Computer Science from Indiana University. I am also a graduate of the US Army Signal School. I hold both commercial and amateur general class FCC licenses. Professionally, I am active with Educause, Internet2, ACUTA, and the IEEE. My communities of interest includes local Skywarn, Amateur Radio Emergency Service, and the Amateur Radio Relay League. I am a member of American Legion Post 18, Monroe County Repeater Association, K9IU Radio Club, and Bloomington Amateur Radio Club.
I have significant experience with military and civil command and control communication systems, and with weather RADAR systems. I hold fourteen FEMA certifications in emergency management, including Incident Command System 400 certification. I am a skilled ESF2 operator and a seasoned network control station.
Civil and community service
I am also active with other Bloomington community volunteer activities, including providing Hospice care for patients and their families. I really enjoy providing hospice services, where I do hands-on patient care and social work, such as bereavement therapy, life review, and family dynamics. Hospice began as a volunteer movement and was later embraced by the medical community. Today our volunteers operate with a wonderful support network of professional nurses, social workers, psychologists, chaplains, and physical therapists. Often, I am the last friend that a dying patient makes in their life. Its a wonderful experience to open one's heart and listen carefully to another person's story and concerns. This work helps inform me of what is and is not important in my own life.
Come rain or shine (but not heavy lightening), I try to hike an hour every day in the heart of Griffy woods, where I live in a wonderful home with my beautiful and loving wife, Julie, who teaches at four universities and is a county commissioner (CEO).
