Funds were added to the new Recreation Center budget for a partial year share of OMP by the university.

Implementation of electronic voting for SGA elections in spring 2000 resulted in a doubling of student participation.

A successful search for a vice president for student services resulted in our top choice accepting the position. We anticipate even closer working relationships between student services and academic affairs that will significantly benefit students.

The Quality in Undergraduate Education (QUE) project was funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts and by the ExxonMobil Foundation. Georgia State is the fiscal agent for a consortium of ten clusters of institutions and the Education Trust to develop standards and assessments for graduation from college and for transfer from lower division to upper division after two years of college. Georgia State and Georgia Perimeter College are working in the disciplines of biology, history, and mathematics.

A Standards-based Teacher Education Project (STEP) received continued funding under USG Title II grant and from a grant from the Carnegie Foundation to CBE/AACTE. STEP involves alignment of standards and assessments for teacher preparation.
