Longtime GIS educator David DiBiase joins Esri as the director of education within the company's Industry Solutions division. He succeeds current director, Dr. Michael Gould, who is returning to Europe to manage Esri's education programs in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

DiBiase begins part-time consulting at Esri immediately and will assume leadership of the education team on August 1, 2011.

"I have followed the Esri education team with admiration for many years and look forward to contributing to its continued success as director," says DiBiase.

DiBiase currently directs the John A. Dutton e-Education Institute within the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences at Pennsylvania State University. He is a senior lecturer in the university's department of geography and faculty coordinator of its certificate and master of GIS degree programs, offered online through the university's World Campus.

DiBiase has master of science and bachelor of science degrees in cartography from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. He is both a certified mapping scientist, GIS/LIS (American Society for Photogrammetric Engineering and Remote Sensing) and a geographic information systems professional (GISP). DiBiase has written extensively on GIS, geography, and education for more than 20 years.

"We welcome David to the Esri campus," says Lew Nelson, Esri's industry solutions manager. "With his extensive knowledge of GIS programs in higher education, I am sure he will soon make positive contributions to his team and the education community."
