Computer Equipment for Faculty/Staff

The English department provides each faculty member with one standard system (either a laptop or desktop).  Each summer, College and English IT staff evaluate hardware from several vendors. new faculties will receive one of these systems upon their arrival.

Staff inherits the equipment assigned to their position, all PCs are updated on a 3-4 year rotation contingent upon funds being available.
