Information Technology Policy + Security

The following are policies and standards for the School of Architecture and the University of Virginia more broadly, which apply to all employees - faculty and staff - and include equipment, software, data, and the ways in which we all work with these.  Some of these policies will also apply to students, especially students who work for the School in an SIA, SRA, or SSA position or related activities.

These policies are required and apply to everyone, as established and supported by the Dean's office.
