  • For privacy/security reasons, Information Technology must recover computers for any employee who has separated from the college.
  • Academic departments and offices are responsible for notifying Information Technology when an employee separates from the college. 
  • If the department fills the vacant position in the future, the new employee will receive a new computer.
Please Note: Computers and equipment are not be reassigned from one employee to another by academic or office staff. After recovering the computers and equipment, Information Technology will determine if the devices can be re-purposed. If not, the devices will be sent to surplus.
