Not all students have access to a computer powerful enough to run necessary programs to complete their communication coursework. In response, Murrow College established a laptop loaner program which provides students in need with a laptop from the College for the semester. We also recognized the cost of software can be a barrier for some students and, in response, established technology awards for students in need to pay for programs such as the Adobe Creative Cloud.
