IRT Managed Print Services

The campus has signed a contract with Xerox. The only areas in scope for “complete overhaul” are ABA, HR, IRT. Impact to A&L will be the following:

Summer 2015 Lab Updates

For Summer, the following labs have been approved for hardware update/replacement using College funds:

  • COMS (MND 3002)

The following labs are candidates for updates should more funding become available:

  • ART (MRP 1007)
  • ENGL (CLV 131) - postponed from 2014
  • PHOT (MRP 1005)
  • FORL Practice Lab (MRP 2002) - postponed from 2014
  • ENGL Writing Center (CLV 128)

It is unlikely that the College will be able to fund all these labs, so prioritization will be necessary.
