Miami University Student Technology Fee

The Student Technology Fee, passed by the Board of Trustees in February 2006, funds programs and services that support students in achieving their academic program goals and enhance their life at Miami.

The funds are divided into three pools, as follows:

1) Ongoing Student Services - Provides funds to keep technology in classrooms up to date, fund positions dedicated to student support, pay wages for IT Services student staff, and provide maintenance for software in support of student services.

2) Dean's Allocations - This portion is allocated to the Schools, the College and the Libraries for each dean to respond to student technology needs in their division.

3) Competitive Proposal Process - Provides funds for the innovative student-focused technology projects submitted by students, faculty or staff.
