1 Transforming Education Through Information Technologies NSF Advanced Networking Project With Minority-Serving Institutions (AN-MSI) Dave Staudt, AN-MSI Project Director, EDUCAUSE Valerie Rice, AN-MSI Project Assistant, EDUCAUSE Laura-Lee Davidson, HBCU Project Coordinator, ELC Al Kuslikis, TCU Project Associate, AIHEC

2 Transforming Education Through Information Technologies AN-MSI Project Four-year, $6 million grant (ANI ) from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Includes $1 million subcontract to EOT-PACI (the Education, Outreach, and Training Partnership for Advanced Computational Infrastructure) Overall Goal: To assist minority-serving institutions as they improve Internet connectivity, campus networks and their technical support, and advanced use of the networks

3 Transforming Education Through Information Technologies AN-MSI Partners EDUCAUSE and EOT-PACI Three Minority-Serving Communities (101 first cohort members out of over 300 higher education institutions) Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) Executive Leadership Foundations Technology Transfer Project (TTP) National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education (NAFEO) The College Fund/UNCF National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges (NASULGC) Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC)

4 Transforming Education Through Information Technologies AN-MSI Participants Currently over 100 MSIs participate, including: Albany State University Alcorn State University California State University – Los Angeles Clark Atlanta University Dillard University Dull Knife Memorial College Fort Belknap College Fort Peck Community College Hampton University Inter American University of Puerto Rico – Arecibo Jackson State University LeMoyne-Owen College Lincoln University in Pennsylvania Morehouse College Norfolk State University North Carolina A&T State University Oglala Lakota College Stone Child College Talladega College United Tribes Technical College University of Houston – Downtown University of Maryland – Eastern Shore University of Puerto Rico – Rio Piedras University of Texas – Pan American Winston-Salem State University

5 Transforming Education Through Information Technologies AN-MSI Committees Executive Awareness Assists campus decision-makers in visualizing and planning for effective integration of the Internet in their institutions Resource Development Locates additional funding to make possible the improvements developed by AN-MSI Network Technology Addresses the networking technical, operational, and support issues facing MSIs, including campus network planning, local consulting and training, and remote technical support centers

6 Transforming Education Through Information Technologies AN-MSI Committees (continued) Internet Connectivity Develops wireless/satellite pilot projects, innovative wired technology, and cooperative connectivity projects Applications Encourages and implements high-performance applications and assists other applications making use of the improved networks Evaluation & Assessment Assesses the projects effectiveness and modifies the project as appropriate
