What is the purpose of the TIP Grant?

The Campus Technology Advisory Board (CTAB), along with the Provost and Campus Technology Services (CTS) is happy to announce the allotment of funds for the Technology Innovation Program (TIP).  This funding is intended for reasonable academic initiatives that relate to instruction, student usage, improving student usage, and/or improving student learning using technology, and to encourage further the implementation of SUNY Oswego's Institutional Priorities (Student Success, Academic and Creative Excellence, Inclusive Community, Sustainable Institution, Partnerships).  $30,000 has been made available to be shared by recipients.

Over the past couple of years, the campus has focused on utilizing digital teaching and learning tools to meet the needs of our students. As we move through the spring semester with our new Digital Learning Environment, we want to assist instructors and students in continuing the momentum of utilizing technology to help students learn and faculty teach. To accomplish this, the priority of TIP grant applications will be to assist instructors and students in any of the following areas:

  • Online and/or hybrid teaching and learning

  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion

  • Accessibility 

  • Student Engagement

  • Initiatives that support teaching and learning with technology 

Please note:  

  • Any proposals containing requests for new technology that have not been released by the proposal submission deadline will be declined.

  • Funding is one time only. License renewals, memberships, subscriptions, and maintenance agreements will not be funded.

  • Installation, replacement, and modification costs required in support of requested items may not be funded.  This includes furniture, white boards, infrastructure modifications, etc.

  • The technology requested must be accessible. 

  • Requested items over $2,500 will require at least three quotes at the time of purchase (State purchasing requirements).  Also keep in mind that we are tax exempt, therefore, make sure that any quotes you receive do not have tax charges on them.

  • Please feel free to contact the following staff members if you have questions regarding your proposal and/or need help with quotes.  Nicole Decker, David Kahn, Kristine Smith, Tyrone Johnson-Neuland.
