ARCHIVED: At IU, when sponsoring an account, what are my responsibilities?

This content has been archived, and is no longer maintained by Indiana University. Resources linked from this page may no longer be available or reliable.

As the sponsor of an Indiana University account, you are responsible for ensuring that the account is not abused. By sponsoring access to IT resources, you are giving the sponsored user the ability to represent IU through this affiliation, and you should consider what the consequences will be if the user causes harm through his or her use of IU IT resources. You should therefore have an official agreement of some type with the person you are sponsoring. Prior to requesting the account, consult with your department or school administration on how best to document the user's affiliation with and responsibilities to both IU and your department.
