A National Study Assessing Computer Technology Master Plans To Meet Needs of College Students & Faculty.
Randall, Cindy H.
The primary purpose of this study was to gather information concerning programs that are in place to address increasing academic computing needs in order to: provide information concerning strategies that universities and schools of business are using to meet demand for computer hardware, software, and printing; identify master plans and programs being pursued to satisfy anticipated future needs; and address programs in place that coordinate the migration and/or retirement of existing computers. A survey instrument was sent to deans of 792 AACSB (American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business) member schools. A total of 135 surveys were returned; over half of the schools that responded have plans in place that allow them to meet technology demands in the future and that address the migration and/or retirement of existing computers. Findings are summarized related to issues addressed in the master plans, time frames for hardware replacement, and differences between universities with master plans and other universities. Three tables present data on funding of new equipment purchases, tests of significance of master plans for meeting future needs, and tests of significance for master plans for equipment retirement. A copy of the questionnaire with tabulated responses is appended. (MES)
