Chris Algozzine is a graduate of Marist College, class of '89 and '95M... so, he has returned 'home' to the Marist Department of Computer Science & Mathematics as a Professional Lecturer after a successful career at IBM. Chris received an excellent college education right here at Marist from faculty like Dean Roger Norton and Professor Richard McGovern as he pursued his B.S. in Computer Science and later his M.S. in Information Systems.  Marist enabled Chris to secure an internship at IBM during his Junior year of college, and then land a full-time job at IBM upon graduation. 

Chris was employed for 26 years by IBM in positions ranging from robotics software developer to operating system tester. He became a manager leading teams in test, development, solutions engineering, and product marketing during his career. Chris has been an Adjunct at Marist for the past 2 years, and received the Adjunct Faculty of the Year award in the Spring of 2014. He is now a retired IBM Executive, a father of 3 teen-age children, an avid outdoorsman, and proud to be engaged in the next chapter of his career at his Alma mater.

Chris, and his wife Bonny (Class of '94) are even more proud that their oldest child, Andrea, is a member of the Marist College Class of 2019, pursuing her degree in Mathematics Education.
