COMPUTER POLICY

COMPUTER POLICY 06-05-01

It was recommended that the Board of Trustees approve a computer policy under which

  1. all undergraduate students who matriculate with less than sophomore standing during or after Fall 2001 will be expected to equip themselves with a computer that can be attached to the Internet at appropriate speeds, and
  2. all undergraduate students who matriculate with more than sophomore standing during or after Fall 2003 will be expected to equip themselves with a computer that can be attached to the Internet at appropriate speeds.

In establishing this policy, the Board understands that the current standard for Internet connectivity is speeds of at least 10 million bits per second (which represents Ethernet direct connection speeds). The Board delegates to the administration the authority to update this policy on an on-going basis to reflect emerging technology. The Provost will provide reports of such changes to the Trustee Policy Committee.
