IT Appropriate Technology Use(Academic Freedom)

Academic Freedom

Free expression of ideas is central to the academic process. However, SUSLA computer system administrators may remove any information from individual accounts or from electronic bulletin boards maintained in individual accounts if it is determined that:

  • The presence of the information in the account, web site or on the bulletin board involves illegality (e.g., copyrighted material, software used in violation of a license agreement). 
  • The information in some way endangers computing, network resources, or the information of other users (e.g., a computer worm, virus, or other destructive program). 
  • The information is inappropriate, because it is inconsistent with the mission of the University, or is otherwise not in compliance with the legal and ethical usage governed by Federal or State law or regulation, or with University or Institutions of Higher Learning policies. 
  • The cost of maintaining the information is deemed prohibitive by the responsible administrative unit. 
  • The user is no longer authorized for access.

Removal of such information will be with approval of the SUSLA Chief Information Officer / Director of Information Technology.
