You may have heard that ACU is an iPhone campus. As new faculty you are entitled to either an iPhone or iPod touch at no cost to you. Those interested in an iPhone will be required to purchase a personal AT&T Wireless plan (plan rates and fees can be obtained through AT&T); the iPod touch requires no ongoing financial commitment. All AT&T services can be obtained with a 15% discount. If you are interested in obtaining an iPhone or iPod touch and participating in the ACU Connected Initiative, please review the information on the New Mobile Learning Faculty page .
