Technology Fee Advisory Committee Charter

Purpose

The purpose of the committee is to serve in an advisory capacity to the UF CIO regarding certain allocations of the annual revenue generated by the technology credit hour fee. It is expected that, particularly during the initial years, most of the annual technology fee revenue will be committed to support and improve UFIT and, as directed by the CIO, to support fundamental infrastructure and instructional technology resources. Accordingly, the committee recognizes that it will be advising the CIO and the University on the portion of the annual technology fee revenue that is not already committed to infrastructure and instructional technology resources.

Structure and Membership

The committee will be chaired by the UF Associate CIO.

Members include:

  • Four members selected by the Student Body President (and approved by the VP for Student Affairs)
  • One member from the Student Government Senate, selected by the Senate President (and approved by the VP for Student Affairs)
  • Two members from Faculty Senate, selected by the Faculty Senate Chair
  • Two members representing UF administration, selected by the CIO
  • The UF CIO

Term of appointment for all members (except the CIO) is one year, with the possibility of one reappointment for a maximum of two years’ service.

Ex-officio membership may be added at the discretion of the chair. It is recommended that the former Technology Directors for Student Government remain on the committee as ex-officio members.

Meetings

Regular meetings will occur twice a semester and once during the summer. However, emergency meetings can be scheduled at the discretion of the committee chair if members are provided with 48 hours notice. Meeting announcements will be posted on the Student Government Web site and at the UFIT Web site 48 hours in advance of meetings.
