IT Projects

Below is a list of current major projects currently being undertaken by the IT Division.  This list is not a comprehensive list of projects, but rather a list of major projects that have an impact on a majority of campus.


Faculty Pool Project

Faculty Pool is an annual project with $228,000 budget to maintain a four year or better replacement cycle for the computers assigned to the 750 full time permanent faculty members of WKU. New computers are provided for all new full time permanent faculty members before the fall semester begins, and replacement computers are installed during the spring semester. Standardized desktops are supplied at no cost to the academic departments, while laptops and Apple Macintosh computers are available at an additional charge.
