      UVM General Policy Notice

        Campus Demonstrations

Within the University setting as within society at large, the exercise 
of one's rights must be tempered by recognition of the rights of others. 
The discovery of new propositions or new solutions may be followed by 
passionate advocacy. Such advocacy must not, however, compromise the 
ability of the University to provide safe access to its educational 
programs and activities.

        Computer, Communication, & Network Technology Acceptable Use

The University of Vermont provides a wide array of computing, 
communication, networking, and other information technology resources to 
students, staff, and faculty to advance the educational, research, and 
land-grant missions of the institution. This Policy sets forth the 
University’s expectations for the acceptable use of those resources.

        Electronic Communication

The e-mail address that has been issued to you is the official 
means by which the University will communicate with you (during academic 
sessions and break periods). You are responsible for checking e-mail 
(from the University) sent to your University e-mail address.

        Peer to Peer File Sharing

Unauthorized distribution of copyrighted material, 
including peer-to-peer file sharing, may subject a student to civil 
and criminal liabilities and to University judicial sanctions.

        Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The University of Vermont respects the privacy of student educational 
records. In accordance with this Act, as amended, this policy 
communicates students’ rights with respect to their educational records.
