Technology Policies

Return to: Section 8. Student Support Services  

Walden University is dedicated to serving all students, alumni, instructors, and staff (“users”) with the appropriate use and support of technology within the organization. These technology policies provide expectations for conduct and behavior by applying guiding principles to the use of the Internet; the university’s computer networks, website, and e-mail service; the myWalden University Portal, Our Community, online classroom; and other facilities, connections, hardware, and software provided by Walden or used in connection with the user’s interaction with the university or its affiliates (collectively, “University Systems”). Walden is committed to conducting its affairs in a responsible and ethical manner consistent with its education, research, scholarship, and social change missions.

By accessing the Walden University student portal (myWalden), and the Office 365 suite of products provided by Walden (including Outlook and other services), you agree to be bound by the Information Technology Policies, Code of Conduct, and other relevant policies contained in the Walden University Catalog and/or Student Handbook. These university systems are solely intended for use in connection with the academic, administrative, social, and operational activities of Walden University, its students, affiliates, and university-approved organizations. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that all coursework, class selections, and any required data, applications, requests, or materials are submitted in a timely manner. Walden will not be responsible for the failure of any communications network, Internet connection, hardware, or software, whether or not provided by Walden University that prevents or delays any such submission. Users of the Walden’s systems agree that there is no expectation of privacy or confidentiality for messages or documents, and Walden reserves the right to access any communications transmitted or stored using the university systems. Any information placed on Walden Web pages, or uploaded to or transmitted via Walden University’s e-mail service, the student portal, or other university system must be suitable for viewing or distribution to both the Walden University community and the public. Violation of any Information Technology Policy, including the Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) shall be considered a violation of Walden Code of Conduct and may lead to sanctions including termination of access to the university systems, dismissal from the university, and legal action where necessary.

These policies may be revised by Walden from time to time. Users are responsible for keeping apprised of changes to these policies and complying with all such changes.
