This case study is one of a series focusing on everyday learning and teaching applications of computers which is addressed to administrators, teachers, staff, and students who wish to plan or improve the uses of computers at their own institutions. Following a brief description of the purpose and selection of cases for the overall study, the report profiles academic computing at Mankato State University, a 12,000-student institution in South Central Minnesota and one of seven state universities. The organization and management of the academic and administrative computing in the state university system is explained and student access to three main computer facilities is described. Also addressed are costs and budgeting, student accomplishments, applications, computer literacy, computer science curricula, outreach, and plans and goals. Under the topic of lessons learned, comments focus on regional timesharing, computer science education, and dual computer usage by administrators and faculty. Contacts, nine references, and a list of the case study and exemplar institutions are provided. (LMM)
