Computer Network Acceptable Use Policy Revised


Based on a recommendation by the NMU President’s Council, the Computer Network Acceptable Use Policy, which is a guide to the appropriate use of network and computing resources, has been updated and revised.


The policy defines users and addresses issues including privacy, system integrity, laws, student code and disciplinary actions.

For example, users should not share their user ID and password with other persons, and the system cannot be used to harass the NMU community with “chain letters,” “spam” or “broadcast” messages.


The policy refers to other NMU policies, as well as state and federal laws that are already in place at NMU. “It was rewritten to simplify it,” said Dave Maki (AdIT). “The other thing was to define what a user of the network is.”


The policy can be viewed at Acceptable Use.
