Please contact your respective Faculty Senate Presidents and request that the Senate Information Technology Committees of your universities select, asap, one member and one alternate to serve on the following two system wide committees:

1.      Faculty Technology Advisory Committee.  At present this committee has representatives from all seventeen institutions under the Board of Regents.  However, this committee will soon be split into two; one for the State Universities and one for the State Colleges.

The Faculty Technology Advisory Committee offers a forum for identifying system-wide needs, including administrative and academic, that can be enabled by technology solutions.   Members of the committees serve as the sounding board for constituents and bring concerns and issues to the attention of the Chief Information Officer of ConnSCU.    Members of the committees also make recommendations to the Information Technology Policy Committee on technology policies, procedures, and standards.     The committee is chaired by the Chief Information Officer of ConnSCU.
