Information Technology Council
Minutes for the Meeting of November 7, 1997
Members present: D. Brown, F. Durso, B. Mason, J. Moore, L.
Portwood, W. Stolt, B. Swisher.
The UTIL grant proposals have been received and will be discussed by the
instructional committee this week.
November 25 there will be a Technology Forum. Lee Colaw, Wilbur Stolt,
Dale Fike, and Bruce Mason will discuss current services and future directions
for IT on campus.
Statistics regarding e-mail usage, student computer lab usage, and modem
pool usage were presented. All indicate large, and growing, use of
IT resources on campus. Student lab usage seems mostly to be determined
by convenience, although statistics giving percentage of capacity (total
and by college) would be useful. The modem pool is over booked, averaging
approximately 18 hours per modem per day in use (assuming 100% uptime).
Strategies for meeting this demand, including adding lines, moving to private
ISP's, charging, and re-allocating resources will be discussed at a later
Council members agreed to help the planning process by researching best
practices in different areas of concern. The assignments are:
Support & Training, L. Portwood & B. Dauffenbach; Infrastructure
& Life Cycle Costs, M. Sherbon, W. Stolt, F. Durso; Encouragement &
Rewards, D. Brown, T. Regan, D. Trytten, B. Swisher; Administrative &
Student Services, J. Moore & M. Borish.
