We have recently been receiving several requests for personalized software installation on the student (public) computers; however we only install and maintain essential educational and curriculum software. While we recognize that many electronic educational resources are available, our software policy ensures that our computing resources are as clean as possible in order to avoid decreases in computer functionality.
If there is specific software that you feel should be included in the standard student profile for the machines, the WSU-SOM Technology Committee does review and approve educational technology resources. Please complete the technology request form.
Do you have a suggestion for how the UME Technology Committee can improve the computer services/technology at WSU-SOM? Send us your suggestions.
