Federal 100: Robert Childs

Robert Childs
Senior Director
National Defense University

As director of the National Defense University's largest college, Childs applied the best practices and technology from some of the top private corporations to create a juggernaut that is preparing the next generation of government information technology leaders.

Childs has helped shape institutional thinking about the use of IT, and the iCollege's training related to information sharing and data security is now having an effect at the Defense Department, federal agencies and industry, in addition to global partners.

"Dr. Bob Childs has become a major advocate and outspoken champion for bringing the three I's -- interagency, industry and international leaders -- together in a collaborative environment to jointly explore and collectively address the universal challenges of information sharing and data security," said Vice Adm. Ann Rondeau, president of the National Defense University.
