CC.01.09 Nominations for Membership on New Committee on Information Technology


On October 23, 2000, the Senate approved the formation of a new Senate Committee on Information Technology (SP.96.04), Bylaws, Part D.16. Information Technology (IT) has taken on an increasingly important role in all walks in life. Among other areas on campus, it significantly impacts teaching and learning, research, service, administrative functions, alumni relations, intramural activities, and other forms of recreation. Faculty and students have a multitude of concerns about IT issues that are as disparate as the campus computer network and how to sustain its growth, on the one hand, and ownership of the intellectual property embedded in a course Website, on the other. There is a need to get a sense of the faculty and the students on these and other issues and to have that sense help determine campus policy. This committee's goal is to help shape campus information technology policy broadly and not to be involved directly with the running of AITS, CCSO, CET, and other campus units.
