LSU Campus IT Policies

Policy Statements (PSs) represent policies of Louisiana State University and Agricultural & Mechanical College. They are not binding upon other campuses of the LSU System and are subordinate to policies of the LSU System issued as Permanent Memoranda to the By-Laws and Regulations of the LSU Board of Supervisors to state and federal regulations and statutes. Policy Statements typically originate within one or more of the operating divisions of the University to address policy issues that are of a campus-wide nature. Policy Statements may also be issued to interpret and implement Permanent Memoranda, By-Laws and Regulations of the Board, or pursuant to the requirements of state and federal law. Please see "IT Policy Statement Quick Reference" for an overview of some of the topics discussed in IT Policy Statements.


Policy Updates

The IT Security & Policy Advisory Committee submitted the "Computer Users' Responsibilities" and "Security of Computing Resources" policies for review, comment, and action by the Vice Chancellors and Provost.  In May 2009, these policies were officially approved by the University administration.  Please see "IT Policy Development Process & Advisory Committee Members" for more information on the policy development process.
