Desktop Enhancement Program

A 5-year computer hardware cycle for S&T employees

The Desktop Enhancement (DE) program has been modified due to the current budget constraints until further notice.  Machines will only be replaced based on a break/fix analysis by our desktop support teams.  Please submit a ticket with questions regarding machine replacement at: https://help.mst.edu 


The DE program provides a $565 stipend towards a standard desktop computer for full-time university faculty and staff through a five-year computer replacement cycle. 


IT will provide eligible recipients with a base model desktop through our contract with Dell.  Departments will be responsible for all additional costs above the $565 stipend provided by IT.  This includes upgrading to a laptop, Mac, or any component upgrades to the base configuration.  The program applies to both academic, as well as administrative departments, and is managed by the Information Technology (IT) department with input from key administrators and faculty.  Academic departments are encouraged to utilize the Information Technology and Computing Committee (ITCC) of the Faculty Senate for concerns.
