Proposed Email Filtering Policy
Andrews University will, as needed, filter objectionable email such as unsolicited
commercial email, email spreading viruses, and email containing inappropriate
references to pornography. Decisions regarding the methods and criteria to be
used to filter email shall be made by the Chief Information Officer (CIO) or his/her
designee and communicated to the Academic and Administrative Computing Committees.
Proposed Appeal Procedure
Appeals to decisions made regarding any Computer and Networks Policy shall first
be taken through the appropriate managerial levels up through the CIO. Issues
that cannot be resolved through this method may be brought to an ad hoc appeals
committee composed of three members from the Academic Computing Committee and
three members from the Administrative Computing Committee. This ad hoc committee
shall have authority to reverse decisions made and recommend policy changes. The
appeals committee shall elect its own chairperson. The appeal process begins
with a request to the chairperson of either computing committee.
