BACKGROUND AND OVERVIEW
The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater seeks proposals for the Student Technology Fee award competition to support student access to and accessiblity of technology.
In the 1993-95 biennium, the University of Wisconsin-Madison proposed, and the Legislature approved, a 2.5% tuition increase, of which 1.7% was for technology. The technology fee was then applied to all campuses during the 1995-97 biennium at the rate of 1% in the first year and 2% each year thereafter. This fee is designated as the Student Technology Fee. Students at all campuses pay this fee. The Student Technology Fee is a tuition surcharge, which is part of UW System's GPR/Fee budget. As such, it is subject to policies for approval and allocation of GPR/Fee funds. The Student Technology Fee is intended to provide students with additional services, and should not replace existing funds intended to support student technology.
ELIGIBILITY AND CONDITIONS
In order to be eligible for a Student Technology Fee award, applicants must represent a department, unit, sub-department, College, division, committee, or organization.
Applications will be considered only if:
ELIGIBLE EXPENSE CATEGORIES
Projects funded by Student Technology Fees should concentrate on areas that benefit all students. Below are examples of appropriate and inappropriate Student Technology Fee expenditures.
Examples of appropriate Student Technology Fee expenditures:
Examples of expenditures that are normally considered inappropriate for Student Technology Fee funds:
If the UW-Whitewater Student Technology Fee Review Committee recommends and the Chancellor approves expenditures from the list of inappropriate expenditures or which may be questioned for appropriateness, a rationale of how the expenditures benefit students must be submitted to ORSP and will be kept on file for future audits.
SELECTION AND EVALUATION CRITERIA
The Student Technology Fee Review Committee will review the applications and forward funding recommendations to the Chancellor. The Chancellor will make the final award decisions, and will notify the applicants directly.
Proposals will be evaluated upon the criteria listed below:
