Mike Velez
IT Manager

I am Mike Velez: husband, father, passionate Mets fan, and IT Manager- in that order. Originally I hail from New York City, which explains my drive and outgoing personality. You will find me to be very knowledgeable regarding desktop, mobile, and network support as well as providing strategic support to departments within DASA. This passion is the direct result of nearly ten years of experience in the educational IT field. My quick wit and contagious laugh put clients at ease while helping to solve their IT issues quickly. My priorities lie in supporting the staff and faculty at NC State to the best of my ability. These priorities are vital to faculty and staff so they can get back to the job of supporting and providing the success of the whole student.

I have a B.A. in Communication Arts from Marymount Manhattan College in New York City. I have completed the ITIL Foundations Certificate and I am currently half through NC State’s Pathways Leadership Development Program.
