The College of Health and Public Affairs recently learned it will receive a 2011-2012 UCF Technology Fee Award for $602,855. The winning proposal, "Upgrading COHPA's Network and Infrastructure," is part of a multi-year effort by Associate Dean Ronnie Korosec to upgrade and strengthen the college's information technology (IT) network.

"This award will allow us to further secure, expand and replace various parts of our new network, including switches, wiring and cabling in HPA I and II," Korosec explained. 

It is the fourth award Korosec has secured for the college in the last three years, and it is also the largest. In total, Korosec's winning proposals have resulted in $1,190,829.73 for IT improvements for the college.

In 2010-2011, the college received two awards ($411,501 and $111,439.61) to upgrade two classrooms with new instructional computer equipment and to secure and enhance their IT infrastructure. In 2009-2010, the inaugural UCF Technology Fee Award year, the college received $65,034.12 to create a new multimedia conference room and a joint-use computer lab on the second floor of HPA I (rooms 213 and 215).

The UCF Technology Fee Award is a competitive award process funded through student technology fees collected in the fall semester of each academic year.
