To supply faculty members with up to date computers to assist in their instructional and administrative needs. These computers are funded by information technology student fees collected and maintained by ITS.
Faculty members eligible for the program are full-time Professors, Associate Professors, Assistant Professor, Instructors, and Lecturers. If these positions are Part-Time, they are not eligible.
Faculty are given the option of a leased Dell brand computer or purchase of an Apple brand computer.
Each year an Audit of STI Lease Machines and users will be performed. A listing of Faculty, location and serial number of machines will be sent to the STI coordinator for each school. They will be asked to respond if that faculty is still at the University, if so, have they changed locations and is the serial number of the machine we have on file correct?
If the faculty member is no longer employed at the University, the machine will be scheduled for pick up by a technician and returned to ITS.
If the machine picked-up has nine months or more remaining on its lease, it will be re-issued to a new faculty member (Assistant Professor, Instructor, or Lecturer).
Each school as well as Lovejoy Library has an STI Coordinator. It is that person's responsibility to verify orders which qualify for the STI program. It is also the responsibility of the STI Coordinator to assist the faculty members or their assistants in completing the proper online and paper forms to complete an order. They are also the "go to" person for meeting deadlines for the receipt of orders. Find your STI Coordinator.
