NASULGC Universities Connecting with the Future: How Do They Do IT? How Do They Pay for IT?
National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges, Washington, DC.
The report summarizes results of a National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges (NASULGC) member survey concerning the use and support of information technology on the campuses. An introductory section offers background information on the challenges facing NASULGC members in building an advanced infrastructure for information technology (IT), delivering high-quality education, reaching out to communities around the world, and developing more efficient administrative services. Major results of the survey presented and discussed include the following: IT is affecting nearly every area of campus, in education, research, and outreach; member institutions are making sizeable investments in IT; universities use a patchwork of funding sources to finance IT; and institutions are using IT to benefit people beyond the campus. A final section of the report lists details of IT initiatives at member campuses in 39 states, Guam, and the Virgin Islands. The survey questionnaire and a glossary are appended. (MSE)
