Minnesota Educational Computing Consortium.
Haugo, John E.
The state of Minnesota has established the Minnesota Educational Computing Consortium (MECC) to coordinate the state's educational computing activities. The Consortium is governed by a board of directors representing the State Department of Education, the State Junior Colleges, the State Colleges, the State University and the public and is designed to respond to user needs as defined by these member systems. MECC receives funding for communication facilities from the state, while support for services comes from the member systems using those services; accountability to the state government and the public is maintained through biennial reports. The Consortium's responsibilities include: 1) the coordination and consolidation of the computing budgets of the member systems; 2) the provision of computer services related to development of educational computing; 3) the offering of fiscal management services; 4) the owing, leasing and operation of computer systems; and 5) the development of long-range computing plans. It is anticipated that MECC will result in the provision of better services and access to computers for educators, students, and the public and that it will promote better communication about computing needs between educational systems and the state government.
