Equipment Needs

We will do what we can to meet equipment needs to support remote education.  We have a supply of laptop computers and iPads for faculty use, and are happy to discuss needs for specialized equipment, such as document cameras or webcams.  If you have a desktop computer in your office and would prefer to take that home, that's fine, though we can't assist with actual move or setup.  If you have equipment needs or requests, please contact the Help Desk for assistance.
