Grossmont College Technology Plan 2007-2010.

Technology

Facilities, Operations, & Maintenance

 

Description

Facilities Operations & Maintenance is the Buildings and Grounds service areas and is made up of the following Departments: College Maintenance, Grounds Maintenance, Athletic Maintenance, Operations, and Facilities.

 

Curriculum Impact

Technology plays a large role in the support services departments.  Although we do not have a direct connection the curriculum being taught on campus, the support provided by each of these departments allows the college to maintain and enhance the curriculum and education services offer by the college.   Most building systems from HVAC to access control are now automated, requiring technology to run, analyze, service and repair.   The Facilities, Operations and Maintenance departments must be allowed to stay current and be provided with the technological tools needed to keep the campus systems and equipment in proper working order.  Without access to technological upgrades and equipment, the college’s ability to provide an appropriate learning environment will be impaired.
