BVU's wireless campus still attracting nationwide attention
Buena Vista University president Fred Moore was a featured presenter on March 30 at the 12th annual Information Technologies Workshop in Pittsburgh.
The workshop's theme was "Anticipating the Future of Information Technologies," and it was sponsored by the Council of Independent Colleges and co-hosted by EDUCAUSE and the Consortium for Computing in Undergraduate Education.
President Moore's speech, "A Case Study in Change Management eBVyou - The Wireless Community," addressed how BVU confronted the enormous challenges presented by information technology in higher education and built consensus for enormous change as a response.
The eBVyou program was implemented beginning with the fall 2000 semester. All full-time Storm Lake campus students and faculty were given their own laptop computers to access BVU's new wireless network system. This made BVU the only school in the nation to create a fully wireless community, connecting faculty and students anytime, anywhere on its 60-acre campus.
