Individual Web Page Agreement
The purpose of the Individual Web Page server is to provide individual web space in a unified place for all active (full and part-time) Sinclair faculty and staff (see the Network Account Procedures information on the Intranet for a definition of an active faculty or staff member).

Individual Web Pages are to be used to support the learning, research, and community/public service mission of the College and all administrative functions that support this mission. The College encourages the use of individual web pages to share information, to improve communication, and to exchange ideas in support of these purposes. Examples of individual web page use include: an informational page created by a faculty member for a group of students; an informational page created by a staff member for other Sinclair staff members; and an informational page created by a faculty member related to his/her subject area expertise. Examples of materials for which individual web pages are NOT to be used include: family pictures; pet pictures; and ads to sell items.

Individual web space is NOT for departmental web pages. Departmental pages should be published to the external web server, www.sinclair.edu.

Individual web space is NOT available to student employees.

The pages are for the individual use of Sinclair faculty and staff and do not represent a position, opinion, or endorsement of Sinclair Community College. Views and opinions expressed on individual web pages of Sinclair Community College faculty and staff are strictly those of the page authors. Sinclair Community College page owners are responsible for the content of their pages and are subject to all applicable College policies and public laws including but not limited to:

  • Acceptable Use of Information Technology policy
  • Campus Access Policy
  • Employee and Student Harassment policies
  • All applicable copyright laws
  • Federal, state and local laws
The content of individual web pages is not routinely reviewed by Sinclair Community College. However, the College reserves the right to review all individual web pages and to remove from the Sinclair Web server any page that is found to be in violation of the law or College policies or interests or that is detrimental to performance of the Web server or the network.
