CLA Newsletter Poll

CLA Media and PR is planning a new internal newsletter for all CLA faculty, staff, and grad students. A launch is anticipated for this summer, and contents will include college news, hires and retirements, awards, and other good news. The three primary goals of the newsletter are to:

  1. Build community; foster a culture of openness; celebrate success
  2. Tell reader where CLA is going and why, what the big picture is
  3. Provide information

As an early step, we are asking CLA NOW members to share their thoughts on the name of the newsletter. By taking our poll you can help Media and PR name the newsletter. Thanks for your participation.

CLA Computer Replacement Program (CRP)

CLA-OIT is opening the Spring 2010 round of the CLA Computer Replacement Program. The online order form will be available Wednesday of this week. To ensure the completion of EFS processing in the current Fiscal Year (FY10), it is important that orders are submitted as soon as possible. Complete your order by the end of the day on Wednesday May 5.

The CLA Computer Replacement Program (CRP), a purchasing program organized by CLA-OIT, is designed to simplify the computer purchasing process for CLA departments and users. CLA provides computer funding for many different types of users to meet technology support and security guidelines. Computers expire in their fourth year, generally replaced at 3.5 years. All expiring PB (Printed Budget and TS (Teaching Staff) computers must be returned to CLA-OIT. Due to funding GS (Graduate Students) computers will not be replaced this fiscal year.

Computer configuration packages and program information can be found online. Feel free to contact your Regional Technician, who has also received this information, or the CLA-OIT Service Desk (624-4357) if you have questions about your inventory or the CRP process.
