It is illegal, as described in the Federal law (U.S. Copyright Act, Title 17 of the US Code, and more recently the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 105 PL 304), to download, upload, or distribute in any fashion, copyrighted material, in any form without permission or a license to do so from the copyright holder. Cedarville University neither condones nor supports in any way the use of copyrighted material in ways in which it was not intended. Different resources are provided to help students understand the policies and how to comply.
5. Privacy of Student Records – Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
Cedarville University complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (the Buckley Amendment), which is designed to protect the privacy of educational records, to establish the right of students to inspect and review their records, and to provide guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through informal and formal hearings. The University has adopted a policy that explains in detail the procedures followed for compliance with provisions of the Act. Copies of the policy are available in the Office of the Registrar and the Student Life Division Office.
6. Title IX Compliance
In compliance with Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, sex discrimination applies to, but is not limited to: recruitment, admissions, housing, athletic and extracurricular activities, rules and regulations, discipline, class enrollment, access to programs, courses and internships, distribution of financial assistance, distribution of institutional resources, hiring practices, employment, promotion, and policies. For the purposes of this policy, “sex discrimination” shall include, but not be limited to, any acts of sexual violence, sexual assault, and sexual harassment. The University will take immediate action to address sex discrimination promptly and to equitably investigate complaints to resolve the situation, prevent its reoccurrence, and address its effects by implementing awareness and/or preventative measures. The University is committed to promoting respect for the bodily integrity of all persons, the virtues of chastity, and the sacredness of human sexuality. The University affirms that sexual relationships are designed by God to be expressed solely within a marriage between husband and wife. Sexual acts of any kind outside the confines of marriage are inconsistent with biblical principles and are prohibited by University policies. “Sexual Misconduct,” as that term is used in this policy, means any form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX. Sexual misconduct is antithetical to the standards and ideals of our community and will not be tolerated. Cedarville recognizes the spiritual, moral, legal, physical, and psychological seriousness of all sexual misconduct, regardless of the level of acquaintance between the perpetrator and the victim, however casual. Cedarville aims to eradicate sexual misconduct through education, training, clear policies, and serious consequences for violations of these policies. Information is provided on Cedarville University’s policy, coordinator, and resources.
