The Right Spend

When it comes to getting the most out of IT, the majority of two-year schools face very real challenges. For starters, community college budgets are generally smaller than those of most four-year schools. Then, of course, there's the issue of refresh: Because students come and go every two years, there's the expectation that schools will continually invest in the latest and greatest technologies. This one-two punch creates a true conundrum for many of the nation's feeder schools. No wonder both community college tech administrators and their users feel frustrated at times. But the challenge needn't be insurmountable. A number of community colleges, including Santa Rosa Junior College (California) and Macomb Community College (Michigan), have managed solid, highly cost-effective technology deployments simply by putting an eye to getting the most out of every dollar they spend. This article presents six top tips from tech officials at these schools and IT leaders at other community colleges on how they get the biggest bang out of their IT bucks.
