Bush Appoints Jischke to PCAST


Purdue President Martin C. Jischke was one of 14 new members appointed to the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) by President George W. Bush. The White House announced the 14 individuals on February 27, 2006. This announcement comes after the group met without new members to discuss their new IT responsibilities in January.

PCAST advises the president on science and technology issues. Council members include Michael Dell (Dell founder), Gordon Moore (Intel co-founder), Charles Vest (MIT President Emeritus), and Robert Herbold (Microsoft Executive Vice President). After absorbing the President's Information Technology Advisory Committee (PITAC) functions, PCAST now covers IT research and development.
