I write to let you know of two new policies that have been approved recently. The first is the Policy on Use of Video Technologies for Safety and Security Purposes, available at A draft of this policy was circulated to vice provosts, deans, and University Governance leaders last fall. As a result of the questions and comments I received, I convened a broadly representative committee to review and finalize the policy. Following a period for further review and comment by vice provosts, deans, and Governance leaders, the policy is now in effect. It applies to all University units and affiliates.

You also may be interested in a complementary administrative policy on keys and electronic locks at that was approved recently. It describes the responsibilities of University offices and individual employees, sets forth procedures for use of both conventional and electronic lock systems, and is essentially a codification of current practices.

Thank you.
