Community College (CCC) System provides information
technology resources (IT resources) to faculty, staff and
students for academic and administrative use. IT resources
may also be available to members of the college community
through college libraries and websites. This policy applies
to all users of IT resources.
IT resources include,
but are not limited to, computers and peripheral hardware,
software, networks, databases, electronic communications and
Internet connectivity. CCC IT resources are the property of
the Board of Trustees. Use of such resources is a privilege
and is subject to such IT policies, standards and procedures
as may be promulgated from time to time.
IT resources shall be
used solely for legitimate and authorized academic and
administrative purposes, and in furtherance of CCC mission
and goals. They shall not be used for personal purposes,
including monetary gain. Use of IT resources may be
monitored by the appropriate CCC authority to ensure proper
and efficient usage, as well as to identify problems or to
check for security violations.
Any unauthorized or
illegitimate use of IT resources may subject the user to
disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal or
expulsion, as well as loss of computing privileges. Users
must comply with all applicable state and federal laws and
may be subject to criminal prosecution for violation thereof
under state and federal laws.
The Chancellor is
authorized to promulgate necessary and appropriate IT
policies, standards and procedures, including but not
limited to those affecting acceptable uses of IT resources,
electronic communications and network security. Colleges
shall ensure that users of IT resources are aware of all IT
policies, standards and procedures, as appropriate.
