Upon retirement, the computer that the college supplies full-time faculty should be returned to A&S Computing Services. Any computers that were purchased through grant or research funds should be returned to the department for reuse. The college does not provide computer equipment to retired and emeritus faculty members. Some departments provide an office for emeritus faculty and that office may have a used computer in it. Computers are not provided to individual emeritus faculty.
