The Policy for Responsible Computing and Use of College Resources regulates the use of the network and technology resources at Goldey-Beacom College. All network users must comply with local, state, and federal laws relating to copyright, security, and electronic media.
The Office of Information Technology (OIT) assigns a network account to GBC users for accessing the College’s technology resources which include the following:
These resources are available to currently enrolled GBC students for the completion of their coursework and to staff and faculty currently employed by the College. A GBC Network Account is created for students when they start their education at Goldey-Beacom College. It is available for use throughout the students’ entire college career at GBC.
Please note: OIT does not provide technical support for personally owned computers and devices, including those used on the College network.
These areas are intended to be a workplace and the following rules are designed to safeguard the equipment and environment:
