Personal Web Pages

Personal web pages created by faculty, staff, or students are the sole responsibility of their authors. As a service and for informational purposes only, the University may provide lists of and/or links to personal web pages. The University is not responsible for and does not monitor the content of these pages.

However, the University may investigate complaints, and may remove or limit access to web pages that are deemed unacceptable. Since access to University web space is a privilege, acceptability will be determined primarily on how closely the content of the site is related to the individual's role in the university's mission of teaching, research, creative work, and public service.

Personal web pages are subject to all existing laws and university policies, and may not be used to promote businesses, goods, or services; for advertising; or to provide financial gain for any individual or organization.

Personal pages must not convey the impression that the author is representing, giving opinions, or otherwise making statements on behalf of the University or any unit of the university.

A disclaimer must be included unless it is clear from the context that an author is not representing the university. The disclaimer is:

The opinions or statements expressed herein should not be taken as a position or endorsement of Roger Williams University.
