In 2002-2004 a Desktop Upgrade project rolled out almost 2000 new and
refurbished computers to all full time faculty and staff at all campuses
of City College and provided computer access to part-timers. Chancellor
Day initiated the project to create an environment with unified hardware,
operating systems and applications in which faculty and staff can use
technology efficiently and effectively.
