Employee Services

Employee Computing

The Morehead State University Microcomputer Acquisition Program (MAP) facilitates replacement of microcomputers located in academic labs, classrooms, and campus offices. Replacing computers on a four-year cycle allows MSU to maintain up-to-date desktop and portable computing technology in student labs and faculty/staff offices enhancing our ability to provide a high-quality learning experience. Information Technology currently installs approximately seven hundred replacement computers that are acquired in the summer. These units are both replacements for existing machines reaching the end of their replacement cycle and initial placement machines increasing the number of computers included on MAP.
