Technology Advance Committee

Student affairs professionals are tasked to provide a multitude of services, resources and support to ensure student success.  To accomplish these endeavors student affairs must be entrepreneurial, innovative and embrace technology that not only supports but advances our important work.  The Technology Advance Committee is charged with leading initiatives and planning efforts to ensure that student affairs professionals are educated, informed and capable of utilizing these technologies.

The underlying role of the committee is to establish a technology imperative for student affairs to make certain that we are not only thinking but acting with a cutting edge mentality for technological enterprises.  Beyond this, the purpose of the committee is to:

  • Identify the types of technology that student affairs will embrace (student information systems, communication tools, social media, etc.)
  • Suggest new technologies, gadgets and innovative ideas to be considered for adoption
  • Provide proficiency guidelines to enhance staff professional development and help define expectations
