HCC COMPUTING SERVICES
The use of Henderson Community College computer technology is a privilege extended
to all users, including faculty, staff, administrators, and students. Inappropriate
or unacceptable use of this technology may result in loss of this privilege. College
agents MAY monitor information on the college computer network or on individual computers
or computer systems, and complaints of possible inappropriate or unacceptable use
will be investigated. Complaints regarding violations of acceptable use policy should
be addressed to the Director of Information Technology – DIT (firstname.lastname@example.org). In investigating such complaints, the DIT will consult with appropriate college
officials. The DIT will then inform the complainant of the results of the investigation
and explain what action, if any, was taken following the investigation of a complaint.
In resolving complaints of unacceptable use, the college may invoke sanctions against
the offender that range from verbal warnings to expulsion or dismissal, depending
on the circumstances of each incident.
If faculty, computer systems administrators, or administrative staff, in the performance of their duties, discover, in their opinion, a flagrant violation of acceptable use policy, those persons have authority to immediately suspend the computing privileges of the offender pending a formal investigation by the DIS. The results of this investigation will be turned over to the Dean of Student Affairs for further action, if appropriate.
Individuals who believe they have been treated unfairly may appeal through the appropriate appeals procedure set forth in college policy.
