SFSU's "Baseline Hardware/Software Access,
Training, and Support Plan"

 SFSU's "Baseline Hardware/Software Access, Training, and Support Plan" was developed in November, 1996, in response to the CSU Technology Steering Committee's request for plans to meet baseline access, training and support requirements as part of the system-wide Integrated Technology Strategy (ITS) initiative. Baseline access includes providing students 24-Hour access to computers and networked services. Plans were due to the committee by January 31, 1997.

Campuses were also invited to compete for part of $3 million for Spring, 1997, by submitting complete plans and proposals for start-up funding by December 1, 1996. SFSU elected to participate and developed the "Early Start/Easy Access" proposal as part of a comprehensive access, training and support plan. Although this plan was developed within tight time constraints, it was reviewed and endorsed by representatives of the students, the Academic Senate, the Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Educational Technology Advisory Committee (ETAC), the Center for the Enhancement of Teaching (CET), the Library, Audio-Visual Services and Computing Services.

In December, 1996, campus plans and start-up proposals were reviewed by a panel of both CSU and external reviewers. SFSU was one of seven campuses selected for the second round of reviews, and one of only four campuses selected for full funding. On January 6, the campus was awarded $964,000 for implementation of the "Early Start/Easy Access" proposal.

A progress report on the FY96/97 Baseline Access, Training and Support Activities was submitted to the Chancellor's Office in August 1997.
