Yes, this change is what I brought up in class. I'm not sure what
"establish an on-campus presence of a non-University organization"
means...Does that prohibit hosting a web page for a non-profit
organization? Does the pages existance establish a presence, or is
something more required?
What about hosting a web space for a non-university organization that is
realted to the mission of the department? We, for example, host a
presence for NASIG (a serials organization) and for a couple of other
library organizations. We are also host the official site for the N.C.
Zoo (or eco park, or whatever they are calling it). According to the
policy, we boot these groups off our servers, now?
