Clarke College is pleased to announce that the college was recently awarded over $73,000 from the Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust to support infrastructure that will expand the college’s wireless network to the entire Clarke campus.
The project funded by the grant, which will be awarded in April, will add wireless access points across parts of campus not currently wireless and will provide authentication and new security measures to the network.
“Making the entire campus wireless will only further Clarke’s already technologically rich learning environment,” said Joan Lingen, BVM, Ph.D., Clarke provost and vice president for academic affairs. “It will ensure that our students, faculty and staff have 24-hour access to wireless hotspots from anywhere on campus – access that is so fundamental to communication and learning today.”
The Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust is the largest private philanthropic foundation in the state of Iowa. It was created through the estate plans of Carver, an industrialist and philanthropist from Muscatine, Iowa, who died in 1981.
