These replacement processes are managed by IT Services and are centrally funded. The configurations below are standard for staff and faculty. Technology requested or required in addition to one of the standards below will be charged to departmental budgets.

  • Dual 19" HP monitors or equivalent
  • WebCam
  • Headset

Windows Laptop - This is standard laptop computer configuration for those who are wanting a solution that allows them to work both from home and on-campus.

  • HP ProBook 440 i5, 14", 16GB RAM
  • Dual 19" HP monitors or equivalent
  • Docking Station

Faculty and staff who are due for replacement will be notified by IT when they are up for renewal to schedule replacement time. If a staff member has a second computer assigned to them, this computer will be required to be replaced after 7 years and will be paid for from the employee's departmental budget.
