CU: Accountability Resources

Before you start...

Cedarville University encourages students, faculty, and staff to be God-honoring in their use of the Internet. Every CU computer screen contains a sticker as a reminder to please the Lord with our use of technology.

We do recognize, however, that accessing inappropriate material can be a temptation to anyone. We utilize a web filtering product to help eliminate the availability of this material; however, no filtering solution is foolproof. We still need to rely on each person's commitment to holiness in this area. 

The resources listed below offer advice for people who wish to have extra help in this area of their life.  In addition, we encourage students to contact a Residence Life staff member for additional support.

Faculty, and staff with struggles in this area are encouraged to seek a referral for professional support from Cedarville University Counseling Services.
