Fayetteville State University
The Fayetteville State University/Fayetteville Metropolitan Housing Authority Computer Center will provide 30 new computer workstations, wireless Internet access, and training courses at a new public computer center for the Fayetteville, North Carolina, community, including residents of local public housing. Twenty workstations will be located in a “smart classroom” with a ceiling-mounted projector and whiteboard for classroom training courses, and the remaining 10 workstations will be placed in an open-use area. The project will include courses on Internet basics, personal finance and health, and basic job skills. The first 50 users to complete all of these courses will receive a laptop computer for home use. The center will serve an estimated 550 users per week and will be open to the general public. This project will be led by Fayetteville State University, an Historically Black University, in partnership with the Fayetteville Metropolitan Housing Authority and other organizations that will provide training targeted to the needs of low-income persons.
