Vice President for Academic Affairs R. Craig Schnell addressed the TFAC with opening remarks pertaining to the committee's overall goals. He shared his general philosophy about the tech fee proposal process indicating that he feels the committee should show support for those core proposals that impact large numbers of students, such as printing, multimedia support and general classroom technology
- These should be considered an essential need for the campus. He is committed to trying to technologically upgrade 10 classrooms each year and has obtained $50,000 matching funds from the President to do so. Modem pool access will also continue to be supported through the tech fee. He is still seeking to appoint one more student member to the committee. He asked for comments from the group, with brief discussion following.
The fall proposals and a budget summary document were distributed to those present.
The next meeting is the proposal review session scheduled for Thursday, October 5, 3-6:00pm in the Plains room, Memorial Union.
