Academic Computing Committee
FY 2020 - 21 Proposal Cycle
The Office of the Vice President for Information Technology has made an allocation of $100,000 available for fiscal year 2021 to replace or upgrade obsolete computers in existing labs. This amount is less than normal due to current budget constraints.
The Academic Computing Committee (ACC), under the authority of the Faculty Senate, is tasked with soliciting and evaluating proposals and recommending distribution of the funds. The committee will consider proposals to enhance the use of existing labs, peripheral devices, and additional computers, provided they would be used within spaces already allotted for labs.
Before submitting a request, proposers are advised to contact the ACC representative for your college or division for advice and/or clarification and/or request forms.
