Scope and Purpose
This policy sets out the boundaries of acceptable use of the College’s information technology resources. It applies to all users including faculty, students, staff, guests, and visitors using College IT resources.
Spirit and Intent
Technology and its application are constantly evolving and changing. The intent of this policy is to acknowledge that fluidity, establish the boundaries of appropriate technology use where definable, and establish a logical framework to discern what appropriate use means as new technologies and applications appear. The spirit of this policy is to establish those boundaries and framework consistent with applicable laws and regulations, the mission of the College, the broader landscape of College policy, general academic and social community standards, respect for the reasonable privacy of others, and the general ethical and moral standards by which members of the College community discern right from wrong. Thus, this policy reflects the standards of trust and integrity that underpin our interactions with one another.
