UCA computer policy

Posted By on Fri, Jul 23, 2010 at 3:16 PM

Can UCA really slam the door on access to football coach Clint Conque's computer, even if it contains information on whether its use violated school policy and reflects on his workplace interaction with employees?

I don't think so. Consider, from one policy:

Employee and student access to and use of electronic tools such as e-mail and the Internet is intended for university business and educationally-related purposes. Limited and reasonable use of these tools for occasional employee personal purposes is permitted as long as the use does not result in additional cost or loss of time or resources for intended business purposes.

INAPPROPRIATE USES:

Faculty, staff, and students must use good judgment in the use of all computing resources, including but not limited to Internet access and e-mail use. E-mail messages must be appropriate in type, tone and content.

Then there's this 2009 policy with a clear prohibition on personal use of university equipment. Is it not a reflection on Conque's performance or lack of performance of his duties if his computer is full of evidence of personal use of equipment?

Mr. Courtway?

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
