Purchasing Options for Faculty

Getting a Computer

The College makes every attempt to provide each faculty and staff member with a personal computer and software that meet teaching, research, and project requirements within the limits of the budget. Each year computer systems are considered for replacement based on age, user requirements, and resource availability. New faculty members are able to choose either a Macintosh or Lenovo laptop or desktop computer. Staff members are given a computer that is standard for the given department. User Services is responsible for the preparation, delivery, installation, and upkeep of faculty, staff, lab and classroom computers.

Software Requests and Licensing

All software purchases are centralized through the Office of Information Technology. The Office of Information Technology is available to assist with the purchase of software using grant funds, startup funds, departmental funds, etc. Questions regarding software purchase should be directed to Jon Breitenbucher (jbreitenbucher@wooster.edu), Director of Educational Technology.

Information Technology also offers software downloads through our website.
