Research & Economic Development to offer clean laptops for international travel

The Research Development and Compliance Office in conjunction with the Center for Instructional & Learning Technologies (CILT) is prepared to offer a limited number of “clean” laptops to faculty and staff traveling internationally on UND business.  These laptops are referred to as “clean” because they are free of export-controlled technology, student records, HIPPA information, or other sensitive information.  Using a clean laptop greatly reduces the risk of loss, theft, or inadvertent disclosure of export-controlled or protected information.   All faculty and staff are welcome to request a clean laptop; however, priority will be given to those subject to a Technology Control Plan (TCP).

To request a clean laptop for travel abroad:

Email John Miller at and include your name, the date needed, and date to be returned.  Allow at least a week to prepare the laptop for travel.   CILT has a limited number of laptops available and requests will be processed on a first come, first serve basis.  The length of checkout should not be longer than fourteen days.  If you must keep it longer, specify the reason in your request email.  Note that CILT may be unable to accommodate your request. IMPORTANT:  Upon returning to the United States, all data placed on the laptop will be removed, destroyed, and non-recoverable.
