About the Committee
Recommendation for College Council
This item was approved by College Council on Feb. 17, 2022:
"As an advisory committee to College Council, the Technology Committee urges College Council – following the presentation of an analysis of online education needs – to recommend that President Holmes fully fund, staff and support a robust and fully functioning Online Education Center. This recommendation is in view of significant staffing shortages that existed pre-pandemic and have become ever increasingly apparent, resulting in strained operations and lessened services in an area crucial to current and future educational opportunities for the students of De Anza College."
In 2016, members of the Tech Task Force voted to change the group name to the Technology Committee. The group also revised its mission statement and charge. These changes were approved by College Council on January 14.
The Technology Committee meets the first Thursday of every month from 1:30-3 p.m. in ADM 109, unless otherwise noted.
The Technology Committee advises on technology proposals and training needs in support of equity and student success. TC serves as the clearinghouse for technology-related projects and initiatives, disseminating information through representative, expert membership, and serving as both the technology planning and relevant accreditation committees.
