Ramapo College and Montclairs Laptop Upcycle collaboration

Ramapo College and Montclairs Laptop Upcycle collaboration

Tech Highlights:

  • Kicking off “Laptop Upcycle @ Ramapo” is a drive to solicit donations of used, working laptops. The entire program is student-oriented and student-driven: Ramapo Social Work students are helping to organize operations of the program and trained Student Assistants will make repairs and refurbishments. (Here’s how to support Laptop Upcycle @ Ramapo’s Fall 2021 Donation Drive (Nov. 16, 18, 19)).

  • Although Laptop Upcycle has expanded its reach to include Ramapo College of New Jersey, its aim remains the same: to remove barriers to guarantee that students have the tools they need to excel in their academic endeavours. Dr. Susan Gaulden, Interim Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs at Ramapo College, says, “We are truly excited about and committed to our partnership with Laptop Upcycle, as the initiative will ensure our students are able to secure the technology they need in order to have the best possible academic experience and the greatest chance of academic success.”

Locally, everything works the same. If you have a laptop to donate here in Montclair or nearby, just send a quick email to giveget@laptopupcycle.org to set up a pickup or drop off (Or, consider a monetary donation to Laptop Upcycle to help us expand the program locally and regionally.) Join the Laptop Upcycle Lab Facebook group to stay up to date or grab a spot for a lab session here. Click here to sign up for Baristanet’s free daily emails and news alerts.
