Computer Upgrades for Staff

LSA provides the resources to replace all staff computers once every four years, as well as to fund the purchase of new computers when new staff positions are created.

  • LSA covers the cost of one computer per staff member, including one monitor, one mouse, and one keyboard.
  • If work needs dictate, a laptop may be purchased. If so, LSA also covers the cost of the docking station.
  • The default option is a Windows PC. Very few exceptions will be made for purchase of Macs for staff, and only with clearly justifiable need (of which both LSA IT and departmental chief administrator must approve).
  • The cost of second monitors and all other peripherals besides what is mentioned above are the responsibility of the unit (with the exception of the Dean's Office as they are part of the same area budget).

Getting Started for Faculty, Post-Docs, and Graduate Students

We've developed a brochure for new faculty, post-docs, and graduate students to let them know what resources exist that they may find useful.
