The Student Learning Center utilizes 96 "

For better visitor engagement, projectors
and screens are used in the campus auditorium
and Student Learning Center.
" Policymakers recognize how vitally
important technology would be, not only
currently to serve the needs of the citizens
of our state, but as we move forward into
the future, " said Wendy Madsen, special
projects manager for the Wyoming Legislative
Service Office.
" A building like this is incredibly difficult
to restore because there is brick masonry
in the walls, so adding AV into these rooms
represents a tremendous commitment to
technology. What technology does is provide
equal access to all of our citizens, " she said.
