General Agenda Items for AY 2014-2015

  • Social Media Policy
  • Personal Digital Content Policy

The Social Media Policy was developed initially during the 2012/13 AY, refined during the 2013/14 AY and is still undergoing revision as this must be acceptable to T-FSC, C-FSC, AMC, and the SSC.

T-FSC met and discussed this policy during the summer 2014 and at the first 2014/15 meeting in September. Our recommendations were referred back to the General Counsel’s office where Mark Righter is coordinating the input. The T-FSC will have the opportunity to review the SMP later in the Spring term.

During the Spring term 2014, the A&T committee determined that a new policy was needed to supplement the SMP, one focused on the privacy of electronic communications on the NYU network and NYU-owned equipment. This led to the development of what is now called the policy on Personal Digital Content (PDC). To effectively work on this policy, the working group expanded significantly to include representatives from ITS, from Protection, Student Discipline, and Cyber security experts in addition to C-FSC representatives.

The T-FSC initially discussed this policy first during the summer of 2014 and at the September, 2014 meeting. The super-A&T working group met 4 times during the Fall term, circulated several revised drafts, and another meeting is scheduled for Friday, February 13, 2015. Once the super-A&T working group has approved a consensus document, it will be brought to the T-FSC.
