Funding Received for New Computer Classroom

A joint proposal from the Division of Biological Sciences (DBS) and IET to operate a 44-seat computer classroom received full funding from the campus. The computer classroom will be located in the new Sciences Lab Building (room 2060) that will house other teaching facilities such as traditional labs. The room is expected to be fully operational by the start of the winter 2005 academic quarter. The campus provided one-time start-up funds of $135,000 as well as $122,000 in annual, on-going funds for the facility. In addition, Microsoft and Dell Computer Corp will provide 36 computers for the facility. Under the agreement, Classroom Technology Services will manage the computer classroom. Information about IET-managed computer rooms is available via the Classroom Technology Services Web site.
