Tech Funding Programs 2009-2010
Requests for 2009-2010 technology funding from the Classroom/Lab Modernization or the Student Technology Fee programs were submitted by November, 2009. Funding requests again exceeded the available funding. Some of the requests for upgrades to classrooms qualified to be submitted to UW System for 2009-2011 DIN funding. We were able to apply for and receive UW System funding from a state-wide AV DIN that met the CLM upgrades to Erl 202, Erl 208 and HFA 2125. (request made here for $6,002, $4,816, and $31,461). Allocation decisions focused on operational costs and equipment replacements for general access labs and advanced technology classrooms and requests that served campus-wide needs. Priority 1 of most departmental requests will receive funding from this program - although many worthy requests were submitted.
UW-System allocates some designated funding for technology on UW campuses annually. There are two funds, both based on student FTE. The Student Technology Fee (STF) fund is a percentage of tuition revenue. The Classroom/Laboratory Modernization and General Computer Access (CLM) fund is fixed allocation from UW Systems budget. UW-Superior traditionally convenes sub-committees of the University Technology Committee to allocate these funds on campus. Both committees are convened by the Chief Information Officer.
