Technology has become fully integrated into teaching and learning. To keep pace with the evolving needs of our community, OSU has replaced the old Technology Resource Fund (TRF) with two new funds that serve student life more broadly and ensure long term sustainability.

Learning Innovation Grants

These competitive grants will help faculty bring innovation to the learning experience. Grants will be awarded to expand existing initiatives and kickstart new initiatives.

Technology Commons Fund

This fund is structured to provide stable funding for core campus technologies that support student success at OSU. Many of these services were previously funded by the TRF. Funding for these technologies and services will be allocated in the spring.

The principles and priorities that guided the development of this new funding model are:

  • Transparency and engaged decision making
  • Long term view of funding needs
  • Alignment to OSU priorities
  • Data driven decision making
  • Remove competition between operations and innovation
