Abstract/ Summary

Between 2005-2014 the University of Maine and the University of Maine System spent tens of millions of dollars on information technology (IT) with a focus on accounting, human resources, fundraising, marketing and NCAA compliance. During that same period the Unified Fee (established in 2004, previously levied as a Technology Fee) collected some $1.5 million annually in instruction-related technology fees. The Faculty Senate calls on the University of Maine and the University of Maine System to prioritize proper financial support of academic IT at UM.
