SUNY schools are distributing more than 8,800 laptops and Chromebooks “to students in need who are currently completing their spring semester coursework online amid the COVID-19 health crisis,” Chancellor Kristina M. Johnson announced Monday.
"To allow our students to continue their coursework remotely and complete the spring semester, we purchased and delivered thousands of laptops for students in need, and we will continue to do all we can to support our SUNY students," she said in prepared remarks.
The 8,800 laptops are being distributed to students “based on need” after conducting a survey on all 64 campuses and colleges.
