WESTERN WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY

ACADEMIC TECHNOLOGY COMMITTEE

MINUTES OF MEETING OF January 28th, 2009

 

The Academic Technology Committee was called to order on January 28th, 2009 at 4:02 PM.

 

Approval of the Minutes:

The minutes of January 21st were approved without any changes.  There were 10 people present.

 

Agenda Items:

 

STF Proposal Recommendations

The ATC voted on and ranked the 12 non-lab upgrade proposals.  The results are listed below.  Tier one were the top proposals and tier 3, the bottom.

 

Tier 1: Proposal #4, #10, #12, #21

Tier 2: Proposal #7, #15, #16, #18

Tier 3: Proposal #6, #8, #19, #20

 

The members of the committee wanted to note that proposal #4 was ranked highest by a large margin and proposal #19 was ranked lowest.  However, the committee agreed all of the proposals submitted this year were very well written and well justified.

 

A motion was made at the last meeting regarding the ATC’s recommendation for allocating the STF funds.  The motion passed unanimously tonight.  The ATC would like to recommend the STF committee allocate 60% of the STF funds to computer lab upgrades and 40% to the remaining proposals (listed above).  Lab upgrade proposals total approximately $543,000 and the remaining proposals, $372,000.

 

Gary recommended, in the future, perhaps the committee could work towards setting a standard for lab upgrades.  He suggested the labs could possibly move towards a 4-year cycle for upgrades. 

 

 

Adjournment: The meeting adjourned at 4:48 PM.
