1. Purpose:

The needs of the university faculty and staff will always grow and adapt to the continuously changing technologies within higher education. This environment of change necessitates the involvement of faculty and academic staff in shared governance decisions regarding instructional and learning technologies and related support services.

The University Technology Committee (UTC) will represent faculty and instructional academic staff interests regarding technology for instruction, research, and support services. The UTC will address related issues and develop pertinent procedures and policies. The faculty senate will provide UTC with Faculty Senate-driven initiatives.

The UTC will also act as a conduit through which the campus community may request information about or propose instructional and learning technology requests. UTC will consider instructional and learning technology-related issues as they are brought forward to the committee. Any university body is encouraged to and may bring technology-related issues forward to the UTC for consideration.

2. Definition:

This includes computing and communication hardware/software resources with the corresponding infrastructure. This can influence the delivery of instruction and can enhance learning outcomes.
