Computer Technology to Support Advising & Orientation

First Year Program - Undergraduate Academic Affairs








We are seeking funding to replace an aging fleet of laptops used by student leaders during the summer and current students in the academic year to deliver virtual programming to approximately 9,200 first-year students during Advising & Orientation and throughout the academic year. We currently have 62 laptops available for students purchased in 2017-44 (36 computers) and 2019-42 (26 computers) via STF funds; as these devices near the end of their valid lifetimes, they are gradually becoming less reliable. In order to ensure that Orientation Leaders and other students are able to effectively facilitate orientation programming (Zoom connection groups, virtual presentations, etc.), First Year Programs seeks to replace an underperforming fleet of devices with replacement laptops able to handle the demands posed on them by circumstances of use. The XPS 13 with 4 year service contract will allow us to have trouble-free reliable computing resource for our programs for a minimum of 4 and lasting up to 6 years.
