The SLU Department of Academic Technology is dedicated to the production and development of digital based learning materials. It functions as the de facto Faculty Computer Lab but is used by many campus constituencies as well. The Ed Tech Center is the campus Blackboard HQ for training and support as well as the location for CUNY Portal identity registration and verification for students, faculty and staff. The mission of the Ed Tech Center is to enlighten and support students, faculty and staff in the use and implementation of technology in the higher education environment.
Student Technology Fee
What is the Student Technology Fee?
The Technology Fee Advisory Committee was established in 2002 to develop the College’s plans for use of the revenues from the new student technology fee adopted by the University Board of Trustees. The committee was charged with developing a budget plan in accordance with guidelines established by the University as to the expenditure of these funds and to maximize input across the College community.
How does Student Technology Fee work?
The Student Technology Fee (“Tech Fee”) was created as an interactive way to enhance technology available to students on all CUNY campuses. Fees collected from students are held in reserve to fund projects that have a “demonstrable affect” on the student body. Each campus has an advisory committee that consists of administrative staff, faculty and student representatives that oversee budget allocation and project approval however; Tech Fee is totally dependent on the entire college community for its functioning: without proposals submitted by students, faculty, and staff, there would be no projects to fund.
