Welcome to Techstarter

Techstarter is the place for students to champion new and emerging technologies. Suggestions that gather significant support and involve educational technology for students will be reviewed by the CAC chair for possible submission to the CAC committee. Highly innovative projects with the potential to affect a broad cross section of students will receive the highest priority. CAC funding outcomes will be reported back to the University Community. Projects that involve classroom, laboratory or departmental technologies should be submitted through normal college budgetary processes and approved by the associate dean in charge of technologies.
