6 Grant Expenditures

7 Board of Governors Access and Attainment Grant $3M Awarded The Board of Governors awarded a $3 million grant to FSU Computer Science, College of Communication, Electrical and Computer Engineering and FAMU for the joint proposal, "Expanding North Florida's IT Career Pathways," which intends to expand the capacities of the institutions (faculty and staff) to recruit, retain and graduate students in computer science and information technology. This award funds two specialized faculty lines for CS and several shared staff positions at FSU.

8 Technology Fee Awards $224, tech fees awarded in $41, tech fees awarded in Core router project: $57,000 Student NFS server and backup server: $34,000 Projector replacement project: $23,000 Wireless replacement project: $20,000 CS lab (202MCH) PC replacement: $31,000 $9,200 lab switch upgrades

9 ABET Evaluation Fall 2013 BS in CS is an ABET-accredited program (BA in CS is not) Preliminary results of the evaluation visit:  No program deficiencies found  Weaknesses with respect to:  Formulation of the Program Educational Objectives and required periodic review of the PEOs  Need a systematic periodic review and continuous improvement cycle of the Student Outcomes  Faculty numbers are low, in particular Panama city  These contribute to the concern with Criterion I: Objectives and Assessment
