This program will serve to enhance an existing partnership between the College and the Vandalia Hentage Foundation, as GSC will be hosting workshops offered through this outstanding organization. The Fund for Post Secondary Education, FIPSE, grant came in the form of $200,000 dedicated to the establishment of a new computer-learning laboratory that serves both the campus and the greater commu- nity. The lab is operated by students who provide training and oversight of the state-of-the-art facility, complete with 60 computer learning stations and two instructional stations. Student mentors provide train- mg regarding software application and access to Intemet resources. The United States Department of Agriculture, USDA, grant in the amount of $210,890 came in the form of a Distance Learning Grant to provide new learning opportunities through advanced technology to more than 100,000 rural residents of five surrounding counties. This funding will facilitate development of the College's Educational Network (EdNet). Such development will provide distance leaming centers at all the project sites which include: GSC. WVU Tech and county boards of education and permit access to multiple users - making deliv- ery of material more cost effective. So what does this mean? It means we are seen viable and as vital to the future of central West Virginia and to this state. It means that the importance of an affordable liberal arts education is nothing to take for granted, but instead it is something that must be appreciated and preserved for the sake of the people. It means that policy makers and government agencies believe in what we are doing as we deliver a quality education to the teachers, business leaders, nurses and professionals of tomorrow. We cannot sit idly by and accept that the economic impact of the state's financial woes seal our fate. We must remain aggressive and passionate about that which we believe in. We must remain steadfast in our loyalty to Glenville State College. i J
