Use of University computing systems is governed by the following policy:
Computing resources are provided for the use of faculty, students and staff for academic or administrative purposes. The privilege of use is not transferable to another member of the Drew community, to an outside individual, or to an outside organization. Misuse of computer facilities is considered a serious judicial offense at Drew and carries sanctions for anyone found in violation of the University’s policy.
As a member of the Drew community, there are rules and policies by which you must abide to keep the network secure and available for all to use, and to maintain an atmosphere where all are welcome. Your use of Drew’s networking services connects you to the entire Drew community and to the world via the Internet, and therefore reflects on you and on the institution.
Please take these responsibilities seriously and read this agreement carefully.
Drew’s network services are primarily made available for academic and work-related use for faculty, staff, and students. The following policies and guidelines for these systems apply as a supplement to the standard computer and network usage guidelines:
Although system backups are performed, it is still the responsibility of the user to keep their own backup copies in case of emergency. System backups are for the purpose of rebuilding the system in case of system failure.
Other servers may not be established or maintained on the campus network without prior consultation with University Technology. This is so we can be certain that network service and security are maintained, and to maximize the benefit of such services to the University. University Technology reserves the right to not allow servers on the network if the functionality can be achieved with existing resources, or by new UT resources that can serve the community at large. University Technology may need administrative access to such servers as well.
