The mission of the Marshall Technology Outreach Center is to establish Marshall University as the leader in technology outreach in the Advantage Valley region so that information is actively exchanged with external audiences benefiting the individuals, communities, and organizations served, as well as Marshall University.
Technology outreach allows Marshall University to enhance the lives of the community through integrating the University externally and dissolving barriers to traditional technology education. Individuals who may not have the opportunity to be part of the formal campus can be linked to the University through outreach activities.
The goals of the Marshall Technology Outreach Center are:
- To be a technology portal to collect and publicize information about Marshall University’s technology outreach programs in order to have a single point of reference for technology outreach at Marshall University.
- To facilitate K-12 outreach programs and events such as the Online College Courses in the High Schools Program and virtual field trips.
- To enhance Marshall University’s role in the promotion of technology outreach especially in the K-12 arena throughout the Advantage Valley area.
- To coordinate information technology training at Marshall University.
