We are very pleased to announce that the Division of Information Technology has partnered with Academic Affairs and Finance and Administration to establish a continuous, efficient, and effective computer refresh process. This process streamlines requests, approvals, and purchasing to replace dated computers.
All office computers will be refreshed every four years. The type of computer (i.e., laptop/desktop, Mac/Windows, Standard/Power/Super User) you will receive has been determined by Academic Affairs and your department Chair or the Vice President of your division. The distribution of computers via the Computer Refresh Program will be performed in phases.
You will be receiving periodic communications from IT updating you on the program’s progress as well as targeted updates with specific details and instructions as your group becomes eligible. Select the group below that you belong to for more details.
