The University continually develops, maintains and improves its information technology (IT) infrastructure and applications to support the creation, storage, modification and sharing of data on a continuous basis. The University, therefore, has a responsibility to institute appropriate safeguards to keep its IT systems and information assets secure and comply with various regulatory requirements designed to keep certain types of data secure and confidential. The security of these systems is dependent on the individuals managing the resources as well as the individuals utilizing said resources. The University is committed to supporting the principles of academic freedom and the free exchange of ideas and the University's information security policies and programs to support those principles while still maintaining an adequate balance of security.

Our goals are to:

  1. Develop, implement and maintain standards and guidelines to help protect the University's IT systems and information assets from unauthorized access, alteration, or disclosure.
  2. Ensure the privacy of faculty, staff and student information and that of other University customers or associates.
  3. Protect the reputation of the University and ensure compliance with federal and state laws and regulations.
  4. Develop resources, and establish guidelines that allow all individuals within the University community to practice good data stewardship.
