ALBANY, N.Y. – The State University of New York (SUNY) is handing out more than 8,800 laptops and Chromebooks to students who need them to continue their schoolwork for the spring semester.
Students across New York are learning from a distance after campuses closed in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
SUNY Chancellor Kristina M. Johnson says all 64 campuses in the SUNY system were evaluated to determine how many students were in need of these supplies.
“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.
SUNY will continue to monitor students’ technology needs until the state decides when students will be able to return to their classrooms.
