Committee Charge:  The Technology Policy and Advisory Committee shall include:  1) Drafting policies under the jurisdiction of the Academic Senate as they relate to the academic uses of information technology.  2) Coordinating with other standing and special committees in formulating, reviewing, and recommending all policies and procedures related to the academic uses of information technology.  3) Advising the Academic Senate and other members of the university community involved in planning, development, implementation and application of technology campus-wide, and assisting in the communication and collaboration between, and among various constituencies and communities of technology users.  Examples may include, but are not limited to, issues that emerge from the use of technology to support teaching and learning, research, faculty professional development, online instruction, accessibility, copyright, software licensing, the generation and use of electronic databases, email, systems and servers, networks and network security, the campus wireless environment, and emerging technologies.  4) Preparing an annual report on the state of technology, online instruction at CSUSM, and relevant emerging technologies and trends.  This report should be 2-5 pages and may be based on, among other sources, a survey of faculty, information from Academic Programs, and college and campus strategic planning documents.  This report is not a substitute for a year-end report to the Senate.  In pursuit of these duties, the committee may create ad hoc subcommittees.
