The Center for Communication and Information Technology (CCIT) will provide Frostburg State University’s students with modern facilities that will greatly enhance their ability to learn and thrive in FSU’s most technology-intensive disciplines.
CCIT will house the academic departments of Mass Communication, Computer Science and Mathematics, and the graphic design program of the Department of Visual Arts. WFWM, FSU’s public radio station, and FSU-TV3, its cable television station, will have studios in the building. CCIT will also house the support services offered by Academic Computing and Instructional Technologies. Among the building’s features are a “green” roof planted with vegetation designed to reduce FSU’s carbon footprint, technologically advanced video and audio studios and a multi-media learning center featuring a Planetarium, which will add a significant teaching and regional outreach facility.
In addition to the benefit to FSU’s students, who will be learning in sophisticated facilities and utilizing up-to-date technological equipment, WFWM, FSU-TV3 and the Planetarium serve the University’s mission as a cultural resource to the region, and the Planetarium represents a critical piece of the University’s vision for the sciences.
