For Fiscal Year 2011/2012, Hostos Community College plans to utilize the Student Tech Fee to continue the efforts of the previous years, expand upon successful projects and initiate new projects to increase student access to current and future technology and enhance faculty development.
This year, the Tech Fee advisory committee has agreed to maintain and/or expand existing resources for current long-term projects. These items include increasing the library's electronic resources; improving services for students with disabilities with new equipment and upgrades to existing peripherals; implementing new SMART classrooms; initiating an ePortfolio pilot;continuing development of our new Digital Design program; expanding use of the new Hostos ID for room access; and supporting the computer labs, student technology workshops, and faculty development. Tech support levels will be increased to assist students and faculty, and to maintain hardware and infrastructure. The plan also reflects a reduction in printing related expenses by almost $10,000.
