Acceptable Use of Information Technology Resources:  04-38.02
Computers, networks and electronic information systems are essential resources for accomplishing Valencia College's mission of teaching and learning. Valencia grants members of the college community shared access to these resources in support of accomplishing Valencia's mission. Access to these resources imposes certain responsibilities and obligations and is granted subject to college policies and procedures, and local, state, and federal laws. Acceptable use always is ethical, reflects academic honesty, and shows restraint in the consumption of shared resources. It demonstrates respect for intellectual property, ownership of data, system security mechanisms, and individuals' rights to privacy and to freedom from intimidation and harassment.
Valencia's information technology resources are a valuable community asset to be used and managed responsibly to ensure their integrity, security, and availability for appropriate educational and administrative activities. All users of these resources shall use them in an effective, efficient, and responsible manner.
Users of College information technology resources must be aware of and comply with Valencia's "User Authentication Requirements for Access to Valencia Computer Resources" and "Acceptable Use of Information Technology Resources" procedures, which shall address matters including personal communication, privacy and security issues, passwords and Ids, information and data use, consequences of violations, and hardware, software, and network use.
Use of College information technology resources in some areas, for example LRC's and student labs, may be subject to more refined requirements and restrictions. In such instances, more refined usage requirements will be provided and documented in those areas.
