Michigan State University
Michigan State University plans to continue its work expanding public computer access with its Evidence Based Computer Centers II project, the second BTOP award for the University. The project proposes to partner with Lansing, Mott, and Jackson Community Colleges to upgrade and establish public computer centers, making an additional 2,200 workstations available to the public, nearly double the current number. Students from the university and community colleges who are studying system administration and network management are expected to gain hands-on experience by participating in the installation and upgrading process. The new and upgraded centers will provide online skills training and help users develop job-seeking and job-creating strategies.
