The Academic Technology Committee’s (ATC) purpose is fourfold:
- To make recommendations regarding improvement, extension, and development of the services and facilities provided to make technologies available for academic use.
- To report to the faculty regarding the level of provision of educational technology to the academic community both in absolute terms and in comparative terms relative to other institutions.
- To serve as a liaison committee between the faculty, the students, and Information Technology (IT). The committee should also discuss administrative matters pertaining to the provision of suitable technological support of the academic function.
- To encourage the use of technology in the classroom by awarding grants to faculty for new software, hardware, applications, and initial licenses used to support teaching and learning.
The technology grant fund is open to all teaching faculty members. Grant requests for new software, hardware, applications, and initial licenses can be submitted on our Grants page.
We encourage all faculty, staff, and students to reach out to your ATC representatives with any questions, comments, or concerns about the use of technology supporting the academic function. See a list of the current committee members.
