Technology Plan 2004-2007

Business Administration

Description
The Business Administration department has mad positive strides in bringing current technology to the classrooms. This includes computer and video technology in most of the classrooms used by the department. In addition to continuing this trend, the focus for the next three years will be to bring the technology used by faculty up-to-date in order to serve our students better. Two of the three full-time faculty teach online and are currently using outdated, extremely slow equipment.
 
Curriculum Impact
Our proposed plan will impact the largest number of core courses offered in the department, namely Financial Accounting and Managerial Accounting.
 
Approximate Number of Students Served
The department currently serves approximately 1,600 students. This number is expected to remain relatively constant.
 
Support Impact
The technical support that is needed for faculty use includes the state-of-the-art computers and peripherals and a permanent part-time clerical assistant for the department.
