By Ronnie Korosec and Karen Guin

The College of Health and Public Affairs is pleased to announce that it has secured a UCF Technology Fee Proposal Award for $65,034.

The award will enable the college to create a joint-use, "flagship" computer lab and multimedia center for students and faculty members to work collaboratively on research, course work and community projects, said Ronnie Korosec, the college's associate dean for graduate studies and technology and author of the winning proposal.

"Level one planning for this lab will begin in the spring, and the lab will continue to be upgraded over the course of the next few years," she explained. The lab will be housed on the second floor of HPA I.

Funding for this and other awards at UCF was generated by a state-mandated technology fee charged to students per credit hour beginning this fall term. The resulting revenue is to be used to employ technology to enhance the development and delivery of instruction and promote student learning.

A 16-member committee composed of student, faculty and staff representatives from throughout the campus selected the college's proposal as one of several to receive technology-fee funds.

"I'm ecstatic that COHPA has received funding for this project," Korosec said. "These funds will allow us to better serve our students, employ more sophisticated technological programs, and enhance our research and learning potential for years to come."
