The College of Arts and Sciences Information Technology (CAS IT) Committee invites proposals from individual faculty or units for instructional technology needs. Funds for this program are drawn from the Arts and Sciences student technology fee. Proposed projects must be course or student oriented. Particular consideration will be given to those proposals that impact larger numbers of students, although this is not a requirement for funding.


All academic units and all regular full-time faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences are eligible to apply.


Proposals may be submitted at any time. The committee will review the proposals during each monthly meeting.

Application Procedures:

Proposals should be addressed to Bruce Mason,, chair of the Information Technology Committee, and it is suggested that the projects be discussed with members of the committee before the submission of a proposal. We prefer that they be submitted electronically in MS Word, HTML, or PDF format, although others will be accepted. There is no formal limit to the amount of these proposals, but a practical limit would dictate that they not exceed $35,000. All proposals must include a letter of support from the proposing unit's chair and matching funds covering at least 10% of the actual cost of the project.

We request that grant award recipients submit a report to the committee outlining how students have benefited from the grant during or after the completion of the project. These can also be emailed to Bruce Mason at
