Coping with Computing Success.
Breslin, Richard D.
Elements of computing success of Iona College, the challenges it currently faces, and the strategies conceived to cope with future computing needs are discussed. The college has mandated computer literacy for students and offers nine degrees in the computerized information system/management information system areas. Since planning is needed in order to provide more service, equipment, and personnel while operating under tighter budget constraints, budgetary guidelines and priorities have been set that will enable the college to maintain its lead in computing, especially academic computing. The manner in which decisions have been made and their impact on the ability of the college to deliver both administrative and academic computing to campuses are detailed. The future oriented coping strategies outlined include: (1) The college will establish a creative forum for technological futures to identify, plan, and act upon innovative academic and administrative computing opportunities; (2) The college is also engaged in strategic and normative planning and will develop a growth model that includes computer support requirements for all academic programs; (3) Policies will be developed to specify mainframe usage and the role of personal computers within the computing environment; and (4) Faculty education in computing, software development, and interuniversity cooperation will continue to be supported by faculty enrichment funds.
