This policy applies to the use of Cumberland University computing resources, including computer data networks and the resources they make available, as well as stand-alone computers, printers, scanners, and/or other computer related devices that are owned and/or administered by Cumberland University. The policy commences when the user either turns on a Cumberland University owned and/or administered stand-alone computer, logs onto the Cumberland University computer network from any location, or otherwise accesses Cumberland University computer related resources.
Computer access is granted with the understanding that Cumberland computing resources will be used for University purposes. Faculty members, staff members, and students may access and use these resources only for purposes related to their studies, their responsibilities for providing instruction, the discharge of their duties as employees, their official business within the University, and other University-sanctioned activities. Any uses of Cumberland University computer network equipment other than those stated in this policy must have prior written approval by the Vice President for Business and Finance via the Office of Information Technology.
System administrators at Cumberland may publish more restrictive policies respecting use of particular computer systems. Users must abide by all policies approved by the President's Executive Committee related to specific computer network systems where applicable. The University reserves the right to monitor computer usage.
