Technology Fee Cycle 2010-2011

TAMPA, Fla. (January 21, 2010) -- USF Information Technology will soon be accepting proposals for the next cycle of Technology Fee funding, with a deadline of March 15, 2010.


The Technology Fee was authorized by the university beginning in the fall 2009 semester in order to “enhance instructional technology resources for students and faculty.”


In the first year of the fee cycle, more than 60 proposals were submitted, and after careful analysis by three advisory bodies including students, faculty and staff, 24 proposals were funded, with a total expenditure of more $4.8 million.


These proposals will improve instructional technology by enhancing classroom technology, increasing reliability of learning systems and networks, expanding wireless and cell phone coverage, greater access to applications through virtualization, increasing instructional resources on-line, and improving access and security.

All USF faculty, staff and students are invited to submit technology-related proposals on behalf of the university.
