Mission Statement

The Academic Technology Committee facilitates the effective acquisition, use and conceptualization of technology in the SOJC to promote research/creative/professional work, teaching, and learning in line with the school’s mission, as well as communication about the school and publication of the SOJC community’s work.


The committee and chair are appointed by the dean. Ideally, the committee consists of five or six people, including the IT director and the committee chair. Members will ideally include at least one research faculty member, one professional faculty member, and one member from the Turnbull Center.

What is technology at the SOJC?

We define technology as 1) software, platforms, machinery, and equipment used to help gather, organize, teach or communicate information in a manner consistent with the ethics of the fields taught at the school, and 2) the conceptual expertise for creating knowledge and developing new tools and ways of knowing.
