Division Technology Committee re-formed
The Student Affairs Division Technology Committee will reconvene to advise the Vice President for Student Affairs on matters pertaining to the use of technology in the division. The committee will routinely consider the technology needs of each department and of the division as a whole, and recommend ways departments and their staff can work collaboratively to meet those needs.
The committee originated in 1999 and and met quarterly for a number of years with a focus on recommending allocation of funding for hardware acquisition. As various different groups were convened to begin working on the evaluation, selection, and implementation of the University’s student information system in 2007 and the need to allocate equipment resources was diminished due to the Gilchrist fire, the technology committee’s activities were suspended.
The committee members by appointment by Vice President Hogan are Mike Holmes, Student Affairs; Dale Hartz, Office of Career Services; Nancy Lindgard, DOR; Brian Sellers, University Health Services; Tim Bakula, Office of Student Financial Aid; Brian Beardsley, Maucker Union; Todd Thomas, Department of Residence/ResNet; Jennifer Suchan, Office of the Registrar; Patti Rust, Office of the Registrar; Erik Winkel, Office of Admissions; as well as a division tech student to be determined. Sam Barr, Student Affairs Information Technology Coordinator will serve as the chair.
