Computer Disconnection Policy
At its April 28 meeting, the University Council discussed the proposed policy on Computer Disconnection from PennNet that was developed by the University Council Committee on Communications. (See Almanac April 20, or www.upenn.edu/almanac/v45/n29/communications.html).
The goal of the policy is to protect the academic missions served by Penn's computers and networks. Under the policy, Information Systems and Computing would disconnect from PennNet any computers that have actually damaged or pose an imminent threat of harming the integrity of PennNet.
Your reactions to this proposed policy are solicited. All comments should be directed to the Provost's Office, 110 College Hall/6303, by June 1.
--Robert Barchi, Provost
