In February 2001, the M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust awarded Reed College a grant to enable faculty and staff to acquire, investigate, and incorporate new technologies into their teaching, research, and other professional activities. In conjunction with a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Murdock grant is designed to support a wide range of initiatives, including faculty training workshops, purchase and testing of new hardware and software products, and hiring of temporary technical staff.

Under the auspices of the grant, nearly half of Reed's faculty have received support to examine, develop, or implement new technologies in their teaching and research, traveled to conferences or other colleges to learn about new technologies, participated in training workshops, and developed or directed the development of digital materials.

Various temporary staff members, contract workers, and student assistants have been hired under the initiative to support new technologies, work on digital materials, and train faculty and staff.
