The mission of Vanderbilt University is to be a center of scholarly research, informed and creative teaching and service to the community and society at large. The university upholds the highest standards and is a leader in the quest for new knowledge through scholarship, dissemination of knowledge through teaching and outreach and creative experimentation of ideas and concepts.

The mass adoption of digital technologies in the everyday lives of members of our community requires that Vanderbilt establish clear policies that guide how community members may use the university's information technology resources.
