Peter Blando is the operations manager for Classroom Technology Services at the University of California at Davis, where he plays a significant role in managing resources to support instruction.

He has supervised thousands of students either directly or indirectly over the past 10 years. His most recent projects that utilized student employees include the development of an online work schedule, and timesheet application and an online project tracking system. In the past year, he has provided financial and business process analysis to weather budget cuts and lobby for one-time funding.
