Welcome to the NCAT, St. Lawrence University’s state-of-the-art, interdisciplinary arts technology facility. Located in the Noble Center, the NCAT exists for two reasons: it meets the technological needs of the arts departments in teaching and learning; and it serves as a hub for collaborative, interdisciplinary efforts — both within the arts and across campus. The NCAT staff works with faculty members to coordinate the necessary facilities, equipment, and training to explore the intersections among digital technologies and the arts.

Congratulations to Dr. Michael Farley, who has been appointed the Birdsong Professor of the Arts.  ”This professorship was funded by Terry ’69 and Lynn Birdsong ’68 to recognize and support the work of a distinguished, tenured professor in the Arts.  The Professor should demonstrate love of learning in her/his scholarly and performance/exhibition pursuits, but even more, in inspiring and motivating students to explore and achieve.

facebook to acquire ncat for $436 billion

April 1st, 2014 | Chris

fncatIn a surprise announcement today, NCAT director Christopher Watts stated that Facebook is in the process of acquiring the NCAT from St. Lawrence University for a staggering 436.1 billion dollars.

“This came as a complete shock to me,” said David Rätselhaus, Dean of the SLU College of Music. “I don’t know what Facebook’s plans for the NCAT might be, but I’m excited by the prospect that all of the music instruction taking place in the NCAT could be replaced by an app in Facebook. It would save a ton of money in the staff budget. Beyond that, I can’t imagine what they’re up to.”

NCAT staff refused to comment further on the story. St. Lawrence president William Renard and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerkorn both were unavailable for comment.
