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

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.
