The purpose of this policy is to provide guidelines for acceptable use of email resources at Georgetown College.
GUIDELINES AND RESTRICTIONS:
As a service to the Georgetown College community, several E-mail based mass mailing lists have been created. ¬†These are designed to facilitate the timely and cost-effective distribution of information to the campus community. ¬†In order that these lists remain a reliable means of communication, it is important that members of the Georgetown College community abide by a few guidelines. ¬†These guidelines are not designed to limit free speech but are intended to keep you mail volume at a reasonable level.
¬†Mass mailing lists are for:
- Announcement of campus events and deadlines
- Changes in campus policies, procedures, organizations, or departments
- Notification of the availability of services and/or facilities
Mass mailing lists are NOT intended for messages of a personal nature. ¬†Examples of inappropriate uses include, but are not limited to:
- Soliciting support (financial or otherwise) for charity or special causes not connected with a College effort
- Personal opinion, public debate, or campaigning
- Give-aways (personal property such as furniture, tickets, equipment, books, etc.)
- Unverified public service announcements (such as virus alerts, unsafe products, etc.)
- Chain mail
- Services offered or services sought (except for College related services)
Any individual wanting to post a message to the mass e-mail lists that falls outside of these guidelines, ¬†but ¬†is ¬†felt ¬†to be ¬†of ¬†vital ¬†interest ¬†to ¬†the ¬†community, ¬†must ¬†send ¬†a ¬†request ¬†for ¬†an exception to the Office of the President, Provost, or to their respective Vice President who may forward the message through their office.Policy Effective Date: 01/01/2005 Policy Updated: 06/26/2013
