Substantial investments occurred in GIS IT purchases and software upgrades for use in graduate courses associated with DE Masters programming being developed. ($45,000) Two additional classrooms were upgraded with flatscreen displays – in one room to enhance visibility due to size of the room and in the other room to replace old analog technology that was difficult for students to read. The latter room now also has the capability to be used in a pod-style format for group work and presentations. ($8,500) o The Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources utilized its ETF allocation on equipment to be used by students in all of the Department’s curricula (Forest Management, Natural Resources Ecosystem Assessment, Natural Resources Policy and Administration, Environmental Science: Watershed Hydrology, Environmental Technology, and Fishery and Wildlife Sciences). ETF funds are essential for keeping our laboratories supplied with up-to-date equipment and software that is used by professionals in the various fields.
