Cell Phone Usage / Texting Policy
This document sets forth The College at Brockport policies about cell phone usage and applies to all College employees. For purposes of this policy, the term "cell phone" is defined as any handheld electronic device with the ability to receive and/or transmit voice, text, or data messages without a cable connection. The College reserves the right to modify or update these policies at any time.
E-Mail and Network Policy
This policy informs the college community of the email and network rules and regulations.
E-Mail and Network Policy - Staff Use
The College at Brockport provides staff with access to the Internet for the benefit of the College. Every employee has a responsibility to use the Internet in a productive and responsible manner.Â All equipment and systems are owned by the state of New York and access to information systems is a privilege -- not a right. Violations of this policy can result in the termination of this privilege and/or disciplinary measures, up to and including termination of employment. Personal use of computers and the Internet is not prohibited. Employees should accept personal responsibility for appropriate use of the Internet, appropriate conduct on the systems, and for reporting any misuse of the network.
Mass E-Mail: Faculty / Staff Policy
Overuse and/or inappropriate use of the College's mass email capabilities tax our email system, make email less effective as a communication medium, and annoy many email users. This policy establishes guidelines regarding types of messages are appropriate for mass email, and who may authorize the distribution of mass email. This policy will apply specifically to the Faculty/Staff email list.
Music, Video, Software and Games: Your Obligations and Rights
With the entire world available on-line, it is sometimes difficult to know what is OK to do. While it might seem the most natural thing in the world to download a song and copy it to CD for a friend, or to send some really cool music that you just found to your entire buddy list, it's not.
Password Practices and Standards Policy
The College has established a common mechanism - the NetID and corresponding password - through which individuals can uniquely identify themselves to the College, and through which the College can offer them the electronic services to which they are entitled.
Personal Mobile Device Policy
The College at Brockport provides and supports baseline connectivity to the College's Exchange email and calendaring environment through state-owned computers and mobile devices. We are aware that users will come to this campus with a wide range of devices with a wide range of capabilities and many will want or need to connect to College systems, particularly the Exchange Collaboration Suite, with personal devices. We want to facilitate this kind of mobile device use, while at the same time protecting the security and integrity of the College's network and data infrastructure, and maintaining the confidentiality of College and State data which may be placed on the personal devices as a result.
Retention of IT Privileges
IT privileges generally expire when an individual separates from the College.
Security Camera Policy
The College at Brockport reserves the right to place security cameras on campus where necessary. Security cameras will be limited to uses that do not violate the reasonable expectation of privacy of any individual. The College at Brockport respects the privacy of campus community members and is sensitive to balancing privacy with safety needs on campus. Cameras extend the protection of University Police, even when officers are not in an immediate area. Cameras are not a guarantee of safety, but are a tool that assists University Police. Cameras protect campus community members from dangers by serving as deterrents and expediting investigations.
Use of Electronic Devices in the Classroom
The College is committed to educationally sound uses of technology and the classroom and to preventing technology from becoming disruptive to the learning environment.
