Policy No: CR001

Policy Statement

The college recognizes blogging as an important communications tool. The purpose of this policy is to define and govern the use of official FIT blogs for communication and promotion of FIT-related information in support of its educational mission and strategic goals.

This policy does not apply to blogs developed as a component of academic coursework (including as part of a project or other course-related assignment), through industry-sponsored contests/research, by student clubs or student organizations, or by individuals associated with other college-recognized partnerships or affiliations. Such blogs, however, are subject to copyright and intellectual property laws as well as other FIT policies.

  • The entire FIT community
  • FIT community members (e.g., employees, students) managing and contributing to FIT Blogs
