The Student Technology Fee (STF) Committee is accepting Tech Initiatives abstracts for the current academic year. All Western employees and students may apply.
Abstracts from employees are due January 13. Abstracts from students are due January 21. A link to the abstract form to be used by everyone is here: Tech Initiatives Abstract Form.
Tech Initiatives make up 12.43 percent of the Student Technology Fee, or approximately $175,00 to $180,000 in AY 2021. Tech Initiatives are technology projects—proposed by employees and students—that support the Student Technology Fee mission.
The STF mission:
The Student Technology Fee provides Western students with adequate and innovative technology experiences by:
- Broadening/enhancing the quality of the academic experience,
- Providing additional student access to technology, and
- Increasing integration of technology into the curriculum. For a complete picture of the Tech Initiatives process, please refer to the STF Tech Initiatives web page. You’ll find this year’s timeline, the previous year’s proposals, project history, and an overview of the process for both employees and students.
If you have any questions, please contact STF Committee Secretary Diane Bateman.
Thank you, and the STF Committee looks forward to receiving your abstracts!
