Session 52

Time: 2:30 - 3:30
Session Title: Did the Maya Civilization have a Technology Plan?
Presenter: Joe Moreau
Room: CC 206
Description:
It is a little known fact that archaeologists, anthropologists, and historians attribute the dire predictions of the Maya people and the ultimate disappearance of their society to the lack of an effective technology plan.  In an effort to avoid a similar fate, SUNY Oswego is in the process of developing a long-range technology plan.  Broad-based input to the needs assessment, goals and objectives, and benchmarks of the plan is critical to its success. Please join this session to learn about the progress toward the development of the plan and bring your best ideas for incorporation.
