The Student Technology Advisory Committee (STAC) is charged with prioritizing and recommending projects for disbursement of the Student Technology Fee. The Student Technology Fee (STF) provides students with adequate technology experiences through these objectives:

  • Broaden or enhance the quality of the academic experience through the use of technology in support of the curriculum
  • Provide additional student access to technological resources and equipment that are needed in support of instruction and to maintain and enhance the technological competency of students as it relates to their academic endeavors
  • Increase the integration of technology into the curriculum


50 percent of the funds are allocated to IT Services to ensure that general access computing spaces are equipped with up-to-date hardware and software (within three years) and that such spaces are staffed and maintained an adequate number of operating hours.  In addition, ITS will maintain and upgrade wireless capabilities across campus.

5 percent of the funds are allocated to the library to ensure that a solid selection of electronic databases is available to all students and the physical infrastructure for such databases are kept up-to-date and maintained.

Remaining funds will be disbursed to the campus community through a proposal process.  These proposals will be prioritized by STAC using a standard rubric and sent to the Chancellor’s Designee for funding.
