This is a post for faculty and staff from Executive Vice President Hof Milam and Provost Rogan Kersh:
In the mid-1990s, Wake Forest earned our reputation as a leader in academic technology by supplying laptops and a suite of professional software to every student. Unlike two decades ago, Wake Forest is no longer limited to a single platform or brand of laptop in order to meet our commitment to technology in teaching and learning. It is clear that personal technology preferences are often established well before first-year students arrive on campus, as seen with the increasing number of students bringing a laptop or tablet with them to campus.
In response to these changes, WakeWare, a new Wake Forest laptop program, will allow students to purchase a competitively priced Dell or Apple laptop from among several model options designed to support academic work. Planning for this change has been developed over the past 18 months with presentations to and input from the College Faculty, CIT, Finance Advisory Committee, Campus Life Advisory Committee, and student focus groups.
Here’s what you need to know:
