Workstation Refresh Program gearing up to complete first year of Faculty/Staff Refresh

The Workstation Refresh Program provides student labs, faculty and staff, with the latest in computing technology. Through this program, new desktops, laptops, tablets and a virtual desktop infrastructure will replace aging equipment found on campus today.

This year, the workstation refresh program is focused on replacing out of date machines for Faculty and Staff. As of March, more than 800 desktops, 700 monitors and 300 laptops have replaced with updated equipment.

IT Services is excited to bring the latest in desktop technology to SJSU faculty. We will work with the system administrators in each area to purchase, schedule and refresh equipment. If you have not already placed your faculty/staff order for the 14/15 fiscal year, or you still have a lab that needs to be addressed, please make sure to contact your department AVP, Associate Dean or the ITS workstation refresh coordinator before May 1st. Orders placed after May 1st will be processed next Fiscal Year, so get your orders in soon!

Additionally, IT Services provides automatic updates to keep your computers current with IBM Endpoint Manager and free recycling and disk destruction to recycle your old machine easily and securely with our Disposition and Recycling Services.
