Hollins University Computing Policy
Hollins University supports freedom of expression, freedom of speech and academic freedom in the pursuit of scholarly inquiry and the sharing of information. The University's computing resources are made available to Hollins University's students, faculty, staff and alumni for the academic, educational, creative, artistic, and research purposes of the University. With such use come responsibilities and obligations on the part of everyone using the network. Each member of the University community is expected to protect the integrity of these resources and to know and adhere to University rules, regulations and guidelines for their appropriate use.
Existing laws: All members of Hollins University are bound by
state, federal and local laws relating to civil rights, harassment, copyright,
security, libel and other statutes relating to electronic media.
Libel: All members of the computing community should be aware
that untrue and/or reckless statements made about others may form the basis of a
civil libel action.
Hollins users may use only their own computer accounts. Users may not supply
false or misleading data to obtain an account nor improperly obtain another's
password in order to gain access to computers or network systems, data, or
Although it is acceptable to promote money-making activities for organizations
that are sanctioned by the University, individuals may not use the Hollins
University computer network and resources for money-making activities or to
advertise or support a private or commercial business since this may jeopardize
our non-profit status.
Conservation of Resources
Printers are for the use and convenience of the university community. They
should not be used to print output not related to the university's mission. If
multiple copies of a document are needed, one should be printed and additional
copies should be produced on copiers (to reduce costs). All users should try to
eliminate the printing of pages that are not needed.
Information Technology Skills Requirement
All students must satisfy an information technology skills requirement, either
by taking a competency test, or by passing the Computer Science 100 or 200
course. In addition, Hollins students have the opportunity to take the Virginia
Technology Exam (Tek.Xam) recognized by employers throughout the state as a
standard of computer proficiency.
