Setting up your tech

To fulfill course requirements in the Teacher Leadership degree programs, students must have access to specifically configured computer technology by using a campus computer lab or a personal device.

Graduate students have full access to the campus computer labs. See the lab locations and times of operation.

If you are using a personal device, you must be able to meet the specifications listed below.  As a graduate student, you have access to free anti-viral software and can download the latest Microsoft Office Suite. IT staff can assist you in connecting to and troubleshooting problems with your personal device and the Fort Lewis network at the Connection Center.
