Faculty Computer Purchase Program

This program is Contingent upon Funding

Purpose: The mission of the Faculty Computer Purchase Program is to provide up-to-date computers for faculty.

Guidelines

  1. Faculty who received a new computer within the last three years will not be eligible unless extraordinary needs can be demonstrated. Priority is given to faculty with outdated systems, whose computers are clearly no longer adequate to the tasks they are expected to perform. Faculty will surrender their old machine after data has been transferred to the new machine.
  2. If a standard computer is requested, faculty can simply choose one of the four recommended configurations. See configuration options below.
  3. Inkjet printers and personal laser printers will not be considered for funding through this program.
  4. Full-time and tenure-track or tenured faculty have priority in allocating new computers under this program.
  5. A few faculty may have needs beyond a standard machine. If so, please submit a request for a non-standard computer. See Application Process for a Non-Standard FCPP Computer below.
  6. Click here to submit a new computer request online.

The Educational Technology Committee will review submitted proposals and make recommendations to the Chief Information Officer, who will then make the final decisions. Computers will be delivered as arranged with the recipient.

Application Process for a Non-Standard FCPP Computer

The following information will be required in your application.

  1. Name
  2. Academic Rank and Department
  3. Campus Address
  4. Campus Telephone
  5. Email address
  6. Provide details of the desired computer and what your needs are that will not be met by the STANDARD COMPUTER.
  7. Computer you are replacing: Indicate the type, model and approximate age.
  8. Detailed proposal: Describe how the computer will be used to enhance your teaching and professional work at the College. (Please limit the narrative to one page, in addition to the information requested above.) As noted above, the quality and substance of the proposal shall be the key to deciding to whom the computers are awarded. We can increase our buying power and upgrade computers for more faculty, if most requests are for one of the standard systems. Realizing that one-size may not quite fit all, we will evaluate requests for computers with additional components. Be sure to provide a detailed list of components that are essential to your use of the computer, but are not included in the standard system, as well as a justification for the items.
  9. Approval of the department chairperson (for informational purposes only). After form submission, an approval email will be sent to the chairperson for your department. The chairperson may wish to add comments regarding the importance of the requested computer in line with the department’s programs.
  10. Faculty will surrender their old machine after data has been transferred to the new machine.
  11. Click here to submit a Non-Standard Computer request online.
