Smallwood Foundation Gives 50,000 for New Equipment
Posted: 16 September 1998

The Frances C. and William P. Smallwood Foundation has awarded the Department of Computer Science a $50,000 grant to upgrade the equipment in the Hugh Holman Teleclassroom (room 011). The first phase of the upgrade will equip the room with new cameras and projectors, and a new sound system. Although the classroom is equipped for teleconferencing, the age and deteriorating condition of the equipment has, for some time, made it difficult to use.

The new equipment will benefit many. We can continue to participate in the many research group seminars and colloquia that we conduct in collaboration with other universities. We will expand the services we can provide to others by giving students elsewhere the opportunity to take our courses.

Established in 1968, the Smallwood Foundation provides funds for programs, research, or scholarships in medicine, science, education, commerce, economics, industry and the arts.

More details on our upgrade progress.
