College of Education
Policy on Computer Hardware Purchases for Faculty and Staff
Approved June 19, 2015

The College of Education will purchase a single computer hardware device (e.g., desktop, laptop, tablet) for faculty/staff.  This device will be configured to meet the needs of the individual.  Periodically, the College will replace this device.

A second device will be purchased by the College for a faculty or staff member only when the faculty or staff member

  1. is medically required to conduct College business at home; or
  2. has been charged with regular and ongoing College-related administrative tasks that require travel or work hours that include weekends or evenings.

Faculty or staff members may use funds from start-up packages or funds obtained via grants or contracts to purchase additional computer hardware devices, in addition to the primary device purchased for them by the College of Education.
