DSC Passes Resolution on Enterprise Technology Initiatives (ETI)

March 16th, 2011 | Posted by Suzanne in Blog

The Student Tech Fee is designed to provide funds for technology that enhance the learning environment or facilitate research for students and faculty at the Graduate Center. The CUNY-wide ETI `tax’ is a bundle of software and infra-structure related charges that for the most part is undergraduate focused (Blackboard and advisement software) and irrelevant to doctoral students.

During the February plenary meeting, the DSC unanimously passed a resolution on the level of STF funds that can be used for CUNY Enterprise Initiatives (Blackboard, Email, Academic Advisement, Etc.). Despite a verbal agreement that was made with 2009-2010 student STF Committee members about a one time ‘excessive’ charge, the 2010-2011 budget reflects charges at the same level.
