A number of services are available to support faculty technological needs.

New faculty are offered orientation sessions that include an overview of the Pomona networked environment and available desktop and instructional tools. Such one-on-one sessions can also be arranged for existing faculty. Contact the ITS Service Desk at (909) 621-8061 to make requests.

The College subscribes to NITLE (National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education) a non-profit initiative formerly funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. For more info, see: nitle.org. Under the terms of this subscription, professional development opportunities are available throughout the year at minimal cost to faculty members.

Hahn Teaching with Technology Grants

Each Spring the Dean of Faculty office and ITS send out a Request for Proposals to faculty wishing special funding to support innovative uses of technology in their teaching. Awards generally range from several hundred to several thousand dollars. Please send questions to itg@pomona.edu. Examples of Hahn grants include scanning images from 35 mm slides and storing them in Luna Insight or digitizing video for use in courses and some web site development work.
