Using Campus Technology Resources

Technology has become an integral support component in all areas of CSULB. The campus recognizes the importance of technology and its role in the academic mission of the campus as well as its administrative services. The campus policy on Acceptable Use of CSULB Electronic Communications Systems and Services states:

“Electronic communications systems and services are essential to conducting University business. The continued and reliable availability of these systems and services are paramount to California State University, Long Beach’s (University) ability to fulfill its mission of education, research, and public service. To this end, the University uses, supports and provides electronic communications systems and services for telecommunications, mail, education, and research.

The University encourages the use of electronic communications systems and services for lawful purposes and makes them widely available to the university community. Nonetheless, the use of electronic communications resources is limited by restrictions that apply to all University property and by constraints necessary for the reliable operation of electronic communications systems and services. The University reserves the right to deny use of its electronic communications systems and services, when necessary, to satisfy these restrictions and constraints. “ 1
