The Turtle Mountain Community College provides computers, networks, and Internet access to support the educational mission of the institution and to enhance the curriculum and learning opportunities for students and staff. The Institutional Technology (IT) Committee believes that the resources available through the Internet are of significant value in the learning process and preparing students for future success. At the same time, the unregulated availability of information and communication on the Internet requires that institutions establish reasonable controls for lawful, efficient, and appropriate use of this technology.
The purpose of the TMCC IT Appropriate Policy is to ensure an information technology infrastructure that promotes the basic mission of the college in teaching, learning, research, and administration. *Violating these policies may result in the revocation of the privilege to access computers within the college.
