Calls for Comment on Alcohol,
Computer Disconnect Policies
The President and the Provost remind that comment has been requested on two documents containing proposals they expect to act upon this summer. Comment is asked by the following dates:
By June 1: Computer Disconnection Policy, proposed 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. Send to Provost Robert Barchi, 110 College Hall/6303.
By June 30: Recommendations on Alcohol Abuse, published by the Working Group on Alcohol Abuse (see Almanac May 4 or www.upenn.edu/almanac/v45/n31/FCalcohol.html). A recommendation to lift the ban on alcohol at registered student parties is accompanied by proposed new safeguards and educational programs. Send to President Judith Rodin, 100 College Hall/6303.
