ATS Advisory Committee

The Academic Technology Services Advisory Committee is a faculty appointed committee that is charged with providing guidance and governance on Academic Technology tools, resources, and needs for the university. 

As of Fall 2019, the Instructional Technology Committee has been combined into the ATS Advisory committee. The Instructional Technology Committee is charged with evaluating proposals for the support of innovative and creative uses of technology in the classroom. 

The committee meets monthly during the semester and considers recommendations for classroom technology, software purchasing, and other academic technology tools.

If you have a tool, software or other issue that you would like the committee to review, please email and it will be included in our next meeting.
