UNG Use of State Property, Confidentiality, & Drug-Free Campus Statements

Use of State Property

Property owned by the University of North Georgia shall be used only for institutional purposes, and may not be removed from campus. For example, this would prevent the use of a college laptop to type term papers for a fee after working hours; loaning of a tent to a civic club or a church; or building a cabinet in the woodshop for a fee.

College personnel may not purchase goods or services for personal use through college channels. For example, an employee who orders footballs, flowers, or lumber may not add an extra football, an extra flat of flowers, or extra lumber for personal use even if the employee pays for it. In fact, it is best not to personally buy items from businesses that also serve the university and have those items delivered to the university. The bottom line is: Keep personal business separate from work.

Use of state vehicles for personal travel is prohibited. Spouses and children are also prohibited from traveling in state vehicles.

Confidentiality Statement

In the course of your work you may encounter confidential information, which includes personal information about students and employees, as well as other university matters. As a University of North Georgia employee you are expected to act in a manner that ensures the privacy of all students and employees, and the confidentiality of all sensitive material.

Drug-Free Workplace Statement

The University of North Georgia is firmly committed to maintaining a drug-free workplace. Employees are prohibited from engaging in the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession, or use of a controlled substance in the workplace. Violators of this rule may be required to participate in an approved drug abuse assistance or rehabilitation program, and will be subject to appropriate adverse personnel action, up to and including termination. Employees must notify the University of North Georgia in writing of their conviction or plea of guilty or no contest, under a criminal drug statute, no later than five calendar days after such conviction.
