Communications and Information Systems Policy Summary With the growth of telecommunications in the work place, the Board of Trustees recognizes that students and employees will alter the way that ideas are shared, information is transmitted, and people are contacted. As employees and students are connected to the global community, the use of technology brings new responsibilities as well as opportunities. The College will provide employees and students with communication and information systems for education and educational support purposes. The systems are not to be used in any way that may be disruptive to the learning process, offensive, or illegal. The transmission of sexually explicit images, messages, cartoons, or communications that contain profane or offensive language, ethnic slurs, racial epithets, or anything that may be construed as harassment or disparagement of others based on their race, national origin, gender, age, disability, or religious or political beliefs is prohibited. The systems shall not be used to solicit or proselytize others for commercial ventures, religious or political causes. All employees and students will be required to abide by the NCC Communications and Information Systems Use Policy. Violation of this policy is subject to disciplinary action up to and including expulsion or discharge. View the NCC Computer Systems & Information Use Policy at http://bit.ly/ncc_computer_policy.
