Your Responsibility

  • While technology is an incredible tool, with great power comes great responsibility. In an effort to help our students, faculty and staff better protect themselves, we'd like to share some resources that help describe some of these responsibilities our users have when using the various tools available to them at the university.


    Acceptable Use Policy

    Capital University's Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) applies to all users and all uses of resources, whether on-campus or from remote locations. Additional policies may apply to specific computers, computer systems, networks provided or operated by specific units of the University or users within specific academic units.

Copyright infringement occurs when intellectual property is used without authorization from the owner. Capital University is legally required by the Higher Education Opportunity Act to take action against such activities when we receive a notice of violation for electronic copyright infringement.
