Demitris Cambric is the Executive Director for Academic Technology at Prairie View A&M University. In her role, Cambric is responsible for leading efforts to maintain service and support to the university’s academic units as well as the Office of Academic Affairs through technology.
Cambric’s career at PVAMU began in 2011 when she joined the Office of Academic Affairs as an independent contractor. She was charged with managing a wide array of duties, ranging from budget planning to managing multiple technology system implementations. During her four-year stint as a contractor, she managed the Academic Affairs website, developed a data analysis tool and coordinated and implemented a catalog and curriculum system for the University. That role prepared her to transition to oversee all of the department’s technology projects including upgrading and outfitting classrooms with new learning tools. She is also responsible for ensuring all supporting units – financial aid, recruitment, admissions, the registrar’s office, the library and others have the appropriate software and programs to serve the University’s nearly 9,000 students.
In 2006, Cambric began her professional career with Hewlett Packard. As a training support specialist, she managed a large change management implementation, along with overseeing online and face-to-face employee development and training. She then joined the Cypress Independent School District in 2006 as a business and finance teacher and coach. After six years in the classroom, she joined H&R Block as a client service leader responsible for office growth, leadership and development.
Cambric holds a bachelor of science degree in Business with a focus on marketing and a master of science in Psychology from the University of Phoenix. She also earned her master of science in Education Counseling from University of St. Thomas.
