The College of Arts & Letters is one of the most technology-intensive and technology-diverse colleges in the Missouri State University system. In many classes, technology devices are not only essential tools for instruction, but the major focus of instruction.
Each year the Office of the Provost solicits proposals for Student Computer Usage Fee (SCUF) funding, the major source of funding for COAL's student computing needs. And since SCUF's inception in 1998, COAL has maintained a lab upgrade schedule, a "waterfall plan" of sorts, that outlines new upgrades of advanced computer labs and redistributed, or rolldown, upgrades of standard computer labs. This planning has allowed COAL to sustain the high-level computing demands of programs like animation and audio/video production while being good stewards of the student's limited funds.
On this page, you find all the resources necessary to review COAL's current student computing inventory, the required forms and guidelines for new SCUF requests, and the available archive.
