Intellectual Property and Copyright
Intellectual property rights protect ownership and control over creative works or inventions. The most common intellectual property rights include copyright, trademarks, and patents. Copyright may apply to a wide range of creative, intellectual, or artistic works from the moment the work is “fixed in tangible form.” Trademarks are recognizable signs that distinguish specific products or services from others. Patents cover inventions.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
Textbook publisher and other organizations often offer online tools to augment and improve teaching and learning. Because many of these are hosted off-site (in the cloud) and store FERPA-protected data, prior approval is required for their use.
The University is committed to assuring ethical behavior by all its members toward all its members, and all members of the university community are expected to share in this commitment to ethical behavior. Academic dishonesty is an offense against the University. A student who has committed an act of academic dishonesty has failed to meet a basic requirement of satisfactory academic performance. Thus, academic dishonesty is relevant to the evaluation of the student's level of performance, and is also a basis for disciplinary action by the Provost's office.
