Information Technology Welcome

The computing and networking facilities of Central State University are provided to support instruction, research, public service and other intellectual pursuits by students, faculty, and staff. Acceptable use of these facilities can be loosely defined as that which is consistent with the University's mission, does not break the law, respects the rights of others, and recognizes the value and costs of the facilities. An attitude of cooperation, a sense of goodwill and appropriate network etiquette are expected of all University faculty, staff and student users.

Users of the University's resources accept personal responsibility for their actions and for use of the resources allocated to them. Wasteful and frivolous use of computing and networking facilities, or allowing others to use your account is clearly outside the definition of acceptable use.

The University respects the rights and freedoms of students, faculty, and staff. However, where it is suspected that a user's actions violate these policies or threaten the operation of the University's computing or networking facilities, the University reserves the right to monitor user activity, inspect computer files stored on University computers and take appropriate corrective action to secure the system and protect the rights of other users.

All University email accounts will be deleted upon leaving the University.

The following items are examples of unacceptable uses which, depending on the circumstances and severity, may result in verbal warning, loss of account privileges, expulsion, dismissal or criminal prosecution:
