This proposal to establish or constitute a University Academic Technologies Committee seeks to address the perennial challenges of introducing, integrating, maintaining, upgrading academic technologies in the University--particularly in 3 interrelated domains of instruction, research, and administration.


Technological obsolescence, upkeep and maintenance of facilities, optimal utilization, integration of technologies and online contents into the curriculum, efficient deployment of technologies in services supporting instruction and research--these are some of the challenges facing the University.
