Computing Resources and the Internet
AS-2261-95/AA - March 9-10, 1995
RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University endorse the recommendation of the Commission on Learning Resources and Instructional Technology and the Academic Information Resource Council that students be provided with 24-hour access to computing resources including the internet; and be it further
RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU endorse the "Implementation Plan Related to the Resolution for 24-Hour Access to Computing Resources and to the Network" developed by the Commission on Learning Resources and Instructional Technology; and be it further
RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU Endorse the "Guidelines Relating to Adoption of a Requirement for Students to have 24-Hour Access to a Personal Computer and the Network" developed by the Commission on Learning Resources and Instructional Technology.
RATIONALE: It is vital that students have access to computing resources and the network on a 24-hour basis given the accelerating expansion of electronically accessible information, the necessity of access to information wherever it is stored to maintain the quality of education, the increased diversity of the students' lifestyles, and the inadequacy of current access to electronically stored information to meet the needs of students.
