The 1990s Challenge of Insulating the Institution with 1980s Information Technology Policies


This paper is a snapshot of the current policy environment at universities and colleges, the issues that are arising and are being debated. Many universities that have put policies in place to guide community functioning are reviewing those policies to ensure that they are sufficiently robust to meet the challenges of the fast expanding and changing technology. While review of old policies is going on, new policy areas are also being identified and analyzed. New issues arise, partly analyzed issues continue to be discussed, partly approved policies wind their way through processes, and old policies continue to be in need of review. All exist within campus communities at the same time. Some policy issues even become obsolete before they go to press.
