The Commonwealth Information Technology Program
The Commonwealth Information Technology Program — Part of the Jefferson Institute's "Campaign 2001 Briefing Book" supplied to all candidates, these papers offer proposals to expand the "New Dominion's" technology base. Part I focuses on a concept for a Virginia-wide Bachelor's Degree in Information Technology, detailing the need and the way such a degree could be offered statewide. Part II discusses the need for a special scholarship program that would enable more of our college students in Virginia to take advantage of the proposed degree, as well as degrees in other "critical need" areas necessary for the economic development of Virginia.
