TACIT header
This program, which is funded by the Provost's office, and facilitated by Information Technology, is an attempt to assist faculty who have had inadequate access to technology for curriculum development. The aim is to replace faculty members' primary desktop computers; giving them more immediate access to--and ready capacity to create--technology resources. If you have any questions please contact the Provost's Office x5974 or the Faculty Technology Development Center at x7918, reference: TACIT.

TACIT 2014 Deadline: December 2014


The TACIT application form is currently closed.

The TACIT program is being shifted to later in the year. Applications will open in November, with a submission deadline in December. Training and computer delivery will take place in late February. The reason for the delay is that new computer systems are usually introducted in October and in the past, we have had to place the TACIT order just prior to the new system releases. By moving TACIT to a later date, we should be able to provide newer model systems for the TACIT recipients.

To apply for a new computer, your old computer must have been purchased prior to January 2010.

You will be asked to include specific information about your current computer on the TACIT application form. If you are unsure how to determine the processor type, speed, and amount of RAM in your current computer, click here for instructions.

Either PC or Mac replacements can be requested. There are several options to choose from: desktop, desktop with iPad, laptop, or laptop with external monitor, keyboard, and docking accessories. Faculty who receive an iPad will be encouraged to use it in the classroom. A description of typical computer specifications is given at the Current Systems link in the above menu. By purchasing in bulk, we can receive a discount for certain models and the uniformity makes installation and service easier.
