9. Protection and Proper Use of University Assets

Employees should protect Robert Morris University's assets and ensure their efficient use. Any suspected incident of fraud or theft should be reported immediately based on the reporting guidelines in this Policy. Robert Morris University equipment should not be used for non-Robert Morris University business, although limited incidental or personal use is permitted with the approval of one's immediate supervisor. As such, employees should be familiar with and follow the Information Technology Acceptable Use Policy.

Use of Robert Morris University's electronic media (including, but not limited to telephone, Internet, electronic databases, and e-mail) by faculty and staff should reflect the duties and rights of faculty as stated in the American Association of University Professors' "1940 Statement of Principles on Academic Freedom and Tenure".
