New Campus Information Technology Guidelines Approved

June 30, 1997

UW–Madison’s Information Technology Committee (ITC) and the Provost’s Office have approved guidelines for appropriate use of campus information technology resources. The policy includes nine guidelines in areas like computer security, hacking and impersonation and anonymity.

The appropriate use policy will be incorporated into the student non-academic misconduct rules for UW–Madison. According to the Dean of Students office, violation of the code by students may result in disciplinary action including probation, suspension, and expulsion. Violation of the policy by faculty and staff may result in loss of access privileges, University disciplinary action, and/or criminal prosecution.

While DoIT does not monitor people’s use of the network, the web or email, complaints will be investigated.

The Guidelines for Appropriate Use of University Information Technology Resources can be found on the web.
