Purpose of the Committee
The purpose of the Technology Committee is to develop and implement the strategic technology plan for the college. The plan includes the long-term instructional and administrative technology needs for college leadership initiatives and the college-wide strategic plan. The strategic technology plan aligns with the work of the Strategic Planning Budget Committee and coordinates with the student technology plan. The strategic technology plan’s scope is a two-year cycle and is reviewed and adjusted semi-annually, or as necessary. Working with the Strategic Planning Budget Committee, the Technology Committee will make prioritized budget allocation recommendations to the college to implement the strategic technology plan, including the use of unallocated funds from the college technology fee.
Twice per month on a schedule convenient for committee members. Additional meetings will occur as required. Active participation and attendance is mandatory, and lack of participation and attendance may be grounds for removal by the VPAS on the recommendation of the Chair.
