STF are used to create, maintain and improve collegiate instructional technology resources. Each year there is a call for proposals, which are considered by the College’s Information Technologies Committee. Any academic unit in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences (CLAS) may submit proposals. Multiple proposals from the same department must be prioritized by the DEO. All requests must include a clear explanation of the role of the technology in teaching, including the specific courses using the resources and the enrollments in these courses. Proposals are judged on the basis of five criteria:
- Impact on education and students
- Justification of need
- Expected utilization
- Management plan
- DEO endorsement
More detail of the Call for Proposals, including evaluation criteria, proposal submission guidelines, and a list of funded proposals from the last three funding cycles, can be found at Student Technology Fees.
