About ATAB mission and people.


The Academic Technology Advisory Board [ATAB], a committee of the Office of the Provost, is the voice of the faculty in all matters related to academic technology. Toward that end, the ATAB will develop strategic plans for instructional and academic needs, address concerns raised by the faculty, and provide funding via Academic Technology Innovation Grants for creative/innovative uses of technology by faculty. To implement this charge, the ATAB will partner with ITS and other technology providers to plan, implement, and evaluate academic technology initiatives.

For more information please contact the ATAB grant coordinator.
