Lourdes College has been awarded a five-year, $1.3 million grant for technology advances to the college's computer network.
The grant from the CampusEAI Consortium will provide portal software that will let students, faculty, and staff customize programs to fit their needs.
It will allow a single access point to college systems accessible from anywhere at any time, and create an easier-to-use program, Lourdes said.
The goal is to have the first part of the portal in place by spring, 2008, Lourdes said.
Bowling Green State University received a similar grant in 2004 from CampusEAI.
