Faculty Computer Refresh

Faculty computer upgrades are on a staggered 4-year cycle. The departments are divided in fourths, and every year one fourth of all faculty computers are refreshed. This new cycle is manageable for most needs and maximizes the utility of our hardware investments.

All faculty in Classics, English, Modern Languages and Literatures, Philosophy, Religion, Visual and Performing Arts, Nursing and Music are to review the information in the following link and submit their response by Friday, May 14, 2021.

Faculty Computer Refresh Information – Summer 2021 Roll (Summer 2020 and 2021 faculty only)


  • Windows computers for Classics, English, Modern Languages and Literatures, Philosophy, Religion, and Visual and Performing Arts workstations not refreshed Summer 2020 will be refreshed.
  • Windows computers for Nursing and Music will be refreshed.
  • We are in conversation regarding the future of Macs on campus. In the interim, those in the Division of Humanities and Fine Arts or in Music or Nursing who currently use a Mac may switch to a Windows computer or wait until a decision has been made. The College is moving from Macs to Windows computers where possible due to Apple’s design decisions that hinder the ability of ITS to perform upgrades and repairs, along with Apple’s increasing price structure.

Technology Agreements

ITS has been in conversation with academic departments to draft Technology Agreements for each department. Technology Agreement documents describe current expectations of ITS and each department in regard to instructional technology. They serve to articulate the direction of technology in each department and to outline service and support guidelines for both ITS and each department. They fold into the faculty replacement cycle.

Technology Agreements have been drafted for each of the departments on campus. If you are interested in more information regarding the agreement for your particular department, please contact your department head. For general information, see ITS Technology Agreements.
