University Computer Request

IT@Sam has been assigned the task of providing computers for faculty and staff. In an effort to be both diligent and conservative with campus resources, University preference is that each faculty and/or staff member be assigned a single computer to perform their campus tasks. We do understand that some faculty will require a mobile device to aid them in the management of online classes or with research.

IT@Sam evaluates new technology options (tablets, ultrabooks, etc...) as they are released. This evaluation can take time, so new models will not be available immediately upon release from the vendor. We will make changes to this program as necessary to keep current with the Technology changes that occur.
