Descriptions

Abstract

Clark Hall is home to the Naval, Army, and Air Force ROTC programs. We have two computer labs housing eight computers each for a total of 16 with a printer in each lab. The ROTC programs are requesting help from the STF Committee to replace existing computers and printers that have been in service since 2010. The current equipment to be replaced is quite slow and cumbersome to run necessary programs. We view this proposal as a tech refresh of the current computer environment in which students can further their capabilities through the acquisition of skills and knowledge to be successful in their eventual career endeavors.

Category Justification

This section is empty.

Background

The Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) at the University of Washington provides educational programs designed to give students the opportunity to become officers in the Navy, Marines, Army, and Air Force while completing their bachelor’s degrees. The majority of our students are in pursuit of academic disciplines in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) such as aeronautical engineering or computer science, which requires high quality computers to run technical software.

The ROTC programs are designed to prepare selected active duty members, Midshipmen and Cadets to assume positions of increasing responsibility and importance in the modern military. To obtain their commissions as U.S. military officers, the students spend many rigorous hours applying learned leadership skills and management theories while they pursue their academic studies that will ultimately earn them their bachelor’s degrees. These students go on to become proud alumni, representing the UW around the world. These UW Midshipmen and Cadets are often on campus well before others are awake and are often still at Clark Hall when others have turned in for the evening.

Clark Hall is home to two computer labs that house 16 computer workstations. The students utilize the lab because certain departments require the use of “industry” software that is either too expensive to purchase for their personal computers (such as MATLAB and Microsoft SQL Server just to name a couple) or that is not compatible with their operating system.

Benefits to Students and the University

Clark Hall houses approximately 400 to 500 undergraduate students annually in three separate programs with approximately 50 additional masters and PhD level students assigned to these programs. By providing fully equipped, up to date computer labs, our students would be better able to sustain their academic pursuits. Additionally, the three Clark Hall classrooms are available for general classroom assignments, making Clark Hall computer labs available to a number of students in non-ROTC courses. With these increasing numbers of non-ROTC students utilizing Clark Hall resources, having two quality computer labs available in Clark Hall can benefit these students as well. The ROTC programs are very willing to take on this joint opportunity to provide all students with fully functional up to date computer equipment. As for the old assets, they will be wiped clean of all stored data and given back to the University in order to sell back to students.

Departmental Endorsements

Navy Departmental Endorsement

I fully support the Joint ROTC proposal to upgrade Clark Hall 4th floor IT/ computer support of our students. The current 4th deck computer resources are utilized by over 300 ROTC students for both university and military requirements. Additionally, they are available to any university student who may find themselves in the building awaiting a class that is being taught in any one of the three building classrooms. Due to the age of the current computers, they have exceeded their usefulness and are struggling to keep up with today’s ever expanding computing requirements. Once installed, the requested computers will not only greatly increase the ability of all ROTC Units to complete their training and education mission, but will provide a valuable resource to the entire University of Washington student body.

Professor and Chair Department of Naval Science

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Air Force Departmental Endorsement

Our current student computers on the 4th floor of Clark Hall are in need of replacement/tech refresh. Clark Hall supports all University of Washington ROTC programs (Air Force, Navy, Army) of several hundred cadets and midshipmen, and is also available to all UW students who use the facility. The original computers date back to 2010 and were funded by the Student Technology Fee program in 2010. They are now 5 years old with incredibly outdated systems, and at the end of their shelf life. Following a tech refresh of the computers, all ROTC units will take responsibility for security and maintenance of the systems as we have for the previous 5 years. I am confident we can have another long-term run of excellent care and oversight of the computers in Clark Hall. We humbly request your consideration and assistance for this important student need. Ultimately, the computers directly impact the development of our future US military leaders.

Professor and Chair, Aerospace Studies
Commander, AFROTC Det 910

Installation Timeline

New computers and printers will be purchased immediately as soon as funds become available. After receiving them, we will have them installed within a month.

Resources Provided by Department

The ROTC programs have two computer labs in the fourth floor of Clark Hall that will house the new assets. Also, there will be a designated Computer Staff to maintain the computers and provide necessary security measures to ensure safety of the assets, including a Computer Operations Officer, Computer Officer, and a Webpage Officer between the three ROTC services. It is both the Computer Operations Officer and Computer Officer’s responsibility to maintain and ensure the computers are running at peak performance and to troubleshoot any problems with the computers. Any maintenance expenses associated with the computer labs will be absorbed by the three ROTC programs.

Access Restrictions (if any)

The computer labs addressed in this grant request are not only accessible to ROTC members, but also to any University of Washington student. These labs are used for a variety of reasons, such as ROTC coursework, regular UW classes, ROTC related tasks (such as security clearance programs and other military tasks), and personal usage.
