Whereas the definition of "technology" has been interpreted so as to be synonymous with computers and ignores broader educational applications, and

Whereas there is a variety of equipment used in disciplines that are not computer based but that have been affected by changes in technology,


Resolved that the Academic Senate urge colleges to acknowledge that the use of technology extends across college programs, and therefore funding for technology should be disbursed appropriately, meeting the needs of those programs and not being limited to the purchase of computers.

Status Report: 

This is a consistent Academic Senate's position and is supported regularly in many Academic Senate committee civilities. No further specific action recommended.
