School of Social Work 2020 lab refresh

School of Social Work








Computer systems at the School of Social Work (SSW) student labs were last replaced eight years ago with an investment that was inclusive of STF funds. Four years ago, instead of replacement, the SSW upgraded the existing computers with SSD cards and video boards. This was achieved in part by the SSW 2016 STF request: “UW Student Lab Upgrades at Social Work 2016-96 Sp”. This saved approx. $30,000 along with considerable of e-waste to double the usable lifespan of previous investments. The Room 18 computer lab consists of twenty-three PCs, Research Commons Lab fourteen PCs, and Ph.D. Lab fourteen PCs. There are additionally two, 27” iMac’s in the Media Lab that was refreshed four years ago as part of the SSW’s last request to STF. This equipment should be replaced because it is no longer meeting the needs of students increasing demands on the hardware for large data sets and CPU/GPU intensive software. Additionally, SSW Students are in need of two voice recorders, a microphone, and two wireless microphones to meet the AV needs of our growing student populations field-based academic requirements. Finally, there is also a need to replace an eight year old projector in the Room 18 lab, and to provide a TV in the Ph.D. Lab for group collaboration.
