Bethany Seminary and ESR hire new computing specialist

By Jenny Williams

Bethany Theological Seminary and Earlham School of Religion, both located in Richmond, Ind., have hired Ryan Frame as seminary computing specialist. Frame began his duties on Aug. 5.

“The seminary is committed to developing ways in which changing technology can increase classroom accessibility for individuals and congregations and can also enable greater efficiency for faculty and staff,” said Jeff Carter, president of Bethany. “Ryan is joining us at an exciting time of innovation and creativity.”

As the onsite technology employee for both seminaries, Frame is responsible for maintenance and upgrades of hardware and software systems and provides advice and support for end users in both office and classroom settings. He will carry out his duties in liaison with the seminaries’ external technology provider, ASLI Inc., and will work with Earlham College Computing Services on campus-wide technology issues as needed.

“Ryan brings a wealth of expertise and technical background to his new position,” said Steven Schweitzer, academic dean. Frame has been the proprietor of Simplify Systems in Richmond, providing technology services to individuals and small businesses. Beginning in 2005 he also held managerial positions for Venture Management, including training of supervisors and crew, managing inventory and business expenditures, and conducting inventory audits for Wendy’s restaurants in the region. Frame earned an associate’s degree in computer information systems from Ivy Tech Community College and a bachelor’s degree in business, specializing in management information systems, from Indiana University.
