Who We Are

About Us

The University of Scranton Technology Advisory Group, a subcommittee of the Faculty Senate’s Academic Support committee, is composed of individuals interested in the advancement, promotion, and propagation of educationally appropriate technology.  We aim to be a conduit which facilitates communication and compromise between faculty needs and the capabilities of our infrastructure.  We intend to make recommendations and investigate solutions to technology issues facing our faculty.  We will explore up-and-coming technology products, evaluate those products in their usefulness to our faculty, and strive to place our university at the cutting edge of capability and productivity.  We will solicit feedback from faculty and address as many individual needs as possible.  Please feel free to contact us with any university technology concerns you may have.

Guidelines for Faculty Input on Technology Decisions

In 2010, TAG members drafted guidelines to codify shared expectations between the faculty and any administrative bodies that are responsible for technology resources on campus.  These guidelines have been reviewed by representatives from the Faculty Senate, Information Resources, Academic Affairs, as well as the Faculty Affairs Council.
