Official Web Pages
The John Jay College of Criminal Justice web site policy governs the rights and obligations of the various entities that have access to, and are responsible for, the web pages that are placed on John Jay College publicly accessible web servers.

The official College web site consists of the web pages published by all academic and administrative departments, programs, college committees, centers, institutes, faculty senate, student government, student clubs and other units of John Jay College of Criminal Justice that are authorized to conduct official business on behalf of the College's overall mission. Any questions concerning designation as an official body will be resolved by the president of the College subject to review by the College Council.

Designated representatives of the above-mentioned John Jay College units will be responsible for ensuring that the information on the official web pages is accurate, current, and does not violate the policy of the College and the City University of New York, and conforms with all state and federal laws.

The unauthorized use of copyrighted material and the inclusion of unauthorized advertising is prohibited. Official pages must include: 1) the logo and name of the College and CUNY; 2) links
back to the College home page; 3) the name and e-mail of a contact; 4) accessibility to people who have physical disabilities. Procedures will be provided by the College to assist with implementation of these policies. The name of the content provider for the web page must be forwarded to the webmaster.

Any links provided to other sites must be accessible and appropriate. Links to commercial sites are strongly discouraged, with the exception of resources licensed by the College or by CUNY and entities having formal affiliation with the College or with CUNY.

An exact replica of the printed bulletin will be put in PDF format, serving as a statement of the degree requirements applicable to students entering John Jay the year the Bulletin was printed. A continuously updated version of the Bulletin which includes new courses and curriculum changes approved in accordance with the College's governance structure will be put in HTML format in order to keep information current.

Unofficial Faculty & Professional Staff Web Pages Academic freedom is a cornerstone of the educational process. The Internet is a free flowing medium for information, dissemination, gathering, and exchange. World Wide Web pages developed by faculty and professional staff constitute an important means of formulating and conveying knowledge, including statements of belief and opinion, to the University community and to the world at large.

Therefore, it is the policy of John Jay College that all faculty and professional staff are entitled to use a John Jay server for their own unofficial pages within the limits of College resources.

content and distribution of that content and should strive to maintain high standards of intellectual and academic integrity.

Faculty and staff are responsible for compliance with existing federal, state and local laws, including, but not limited to, copyright law and laws regarding privacy of student information. In addition, web pages on John Jay servers must adhere to existing College and University policies. Examples of such statements and policies are: The City University of New York Sexual Harassment Policy and The City University of New York Computer User Responsibilities Statement. Absent the violation of those laws, policies, or statements, the College should make no attempt to censor or in any way alter the content, distribution, and/or format of any faculty or staff web page on John Jay web servers.

Faculty and professional staff should be aware that their pages are public and will reflect on the College and on themselves. As a service to users, faculty and staff should indicate on each web page the date that the page was created or modified and the e-mail address of the individual responsible for the page. Faculty and staff who use the John Jay server for their own website are expected to make it accessible to people who have physical disabilities.

All unofficial faculty and staff web pages must include the following statement: This page does not necessarily reflect the views of John Jay College of Criminal Justice or of CUNY.
