    Vanderbilt University Information Technology Resources Acceptable Use Policy

    Even organizations that highly value openness and freedom of expression need to set guidelines for how team members use technology. This sample Acceptable Use Policy from a leading university will help your organization get started.

    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. In pursuit of these goals, Vanderbilt
    values most highly intellectual freedom that supports open inquiry, and equality,
    compassion, and excellence in all endeavors.

    To achieve its mission, the university applies substantial financial and personnel
    assets toward operating a reliable, available and secure network-computing
    infrastructure. 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. This
    Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) communicates the respective policies associated with our
    role in the Vanderbilt community as students, faculty, staff or other authorized
    users.
