Educational Technology Advisory Council

The Advisory Council provides the Director of Educational Technology & Media Services with communications from faculty, staff, and students that serve as a guiding force and source of feedback.  The communications and feedback are key to maintaining a focus on key issues, setting a path that aligns with needs, and ensuring the allocation of proper resources.

Background
