Walla Walla Community College Information Resources Acceptable Use Policy
It is the policy of Walla Walla Community College (WWCC) to maintain access for its community to local, national, and international sources of information and to provide an atmosphere that encourages access to and sharing of information. It is expected that college information resources will be used by members of the college community with respect for the public trust through which they have been provided and in accordance with policy and regulations established by the college and its operating units. This policy does not prevent operating units from establishing additional procedures consistent with this policy that apply to use of specific information resources.
In this policy, information resources are defined as those computers, computer software, networks, and electronic messaging systems (e-mail, voice mail, Internet, facsimile and imaging systems) operated by or for the benefit of the students, faculty, and staff of the college. The use of these resources is a privilege, not a right. The user is responsible to use these resources in an efficient, ethical and legal manner.
All users shall strictly adhere to both the letter and spirit of this policy, which is provided to ensure a predictable, secure information resources environment for all users. Failure to comply with the regulations set forth in this policy may result in loss of information access privileges or other penalties.
