Act- Harv Townsend reported on the Patriot’s Act.
It was suggested that the Security Committee review our existing
policies relative to this act. It
was also suggested that department heads be informed of the appropriate
action to take in the event they are confronted with a request for
information. Rowlett indicated that Dr. Unger was planning to notify
all administrators on the A and K list of the Act and to outline the
appropriate action to take.
Townsend reported there was
pending state legislation that may require fingerprinting staff that had access
to computing assets. Gary L.
indicated he did not think this would apply to KSU.
Townsend also indicated there was
pending legislation relative to anti-spaming.
Accessibility Follow-up—Rowlett shared the results of a recent
electronic survey conducted by the Web Accessibility Committee. The survey
was sent to 122 members of the A and K list.

Of those responding, 38% indicated that their home page was
completely accessible, 40% indicated it was being revised to make it
accessible, and 14% had plans in place to make it accessible. She also indicated that at the two-day technology
conference there would be a booth set up to assist departments or faculty
