Computing Priorities: Research and Instructional

Policy Number: 
IV.06.04
Reason for Policy: 

This policy outlines the university’s priorities regarding computing necessary to support research and instruction.

Enactment & Revision History: 

Revised by President Michael Schill on November 10, 2015.
Became UO Policy by force of law on July 1, 2014.
Adopted by the Oregon State Board of Higher Education, Meeting #509, February 24, 1984

Policy: 
  1. STRATEGIC VISION: The University shall develop and regularly update a strategic plan that is designed to place it at a competitive level of computing support to research and instruction.
     
  2. APPROPRIATE COMPUTING SUPPORT: The University shall maintain an appropriate computing environment to support all aspects of the University's mission and to remain competitive in research and instruction.  With respect to teaching, this includes but is not limited to maintaining a suite of instructional software and hardware that will enable the effective use of technology in the classroom and as part of the broader pedagogical goals of education at the University.  With respect to research, this includes but is not limited to maintaining an inventory of research computing infrastructure on campus with an eye toward identifying more efficient use of computing resources for all variety of computing needs, including but not limited to scientific computing, enterprise-level data management, and other research uses.
     
  1. EVALUATION OF COMPUTING RESOURCES: In the development, acquisition, and customization of new and existing computing infrastructure (including but not limited to software and hardware), those managing and purchasing resources should evaluate their systems on the basis of technical performance, support needs, and other usual measures.  In addition, these evaluations should also involve inquiry into, and decisions on the basis of, the social and ethical impacts of computing infrastructure, including but not limited to: privacy, security, accessibility, usability, and sustainability.  This is understood to imply that efforts should be made to develop and acquire systems that are: amenable to or implementing privacy-enhancing and confidentiality-preserving technologies where personally-identifiable data of any kind is at stake, designed with embedded security features, are affirmed by relevant user populations on campus to be more rather than less usable (particularly in the case of instructional computing solutions), and that do not needlessly consume energy.
     
  2. INSTRUCTIONAL COMPUTING PRIORITIES: Faculty making use of instructional software and hardware in their classes shall make use of existing university resources in the case that these are sufficient for their pedagogical needs.  In cases where curriculum and learning needs would be enhanced in significant ways by employing third-party software or hardware, instructors shall make every reasonable effort to insure that the gains from these resources justify any associated expense, and that any such computing resources are employed consistent with university, state, and federal data policies (including but not limited to rules protecting privacy and confidentiality of personally-identifiable information).  In cases of the instructional use of third-party software or hardware, instructors shall be attentive to any additional financial burdens for students required to purchase software and should make every reasonable effort to select systems that do not require students to pay for technology subscriptions, purchases, or licenses.
     
  3. FACULTY TRAINING: The development of basic computer literacy on the part of faculty should be considered an aspect of professional competence and is considered a faculty responsibility. To assist faculty in meeting this responsibility, the University is committed to offering regular training opportunities pertaining to both research-related and teaching-related computing, and considers participation in these trainings a form of service involving a contribution to faculty development.

Confidentiality of Client/Patient Health Care and Survivors' Services Information

Policy Number: 
III.05.02
Reason for Policy: 

This policy outlines the University of Oregon’s approach to the management of confidential student information obtain during the receipt of health care and/or survivors’ services.  Specifically, the policy addresses the limited circumstances in which information may be disclosed and what processes and approvals are required in such circumstances.

Entities Affected by this Policy: 

Any individual who receives health services and survivors’ services from the University of Oregon, as anyone who has responsibility for managing, maintaining or working with records relating to such services.

Website Address for this Policy: 
Enactment & Revision History: 

Adopted as a permanent policy by President Michael Schill on 04/29/2016.

Enacted by President Michael Schill as a temporary emergency policy on 10/01/2015.

Policy: 

General Obligations and Limitations Regarding Confidentiality
The University of Oregon is committed to upholding legal and professional obligations to protect confidentiality. Confidentiality is central to the effective provision of health care and survivors’ services. Providers of health care and/or survivors’ services have a duty to carry out the obligations of confidentiality imposed by law, professional codes of ethics, and this policy. In most circumstances, providers involved in the care of clients/patients shall not disclose information without written authorization from the client/patient. Disclosures made pursuant to exceptions arising from federal and state laws or professional codes of ethics shall be limited to the minimum information necessary.

Litigation and Confidentiality
When the University of Oregon is involved, or anticipates being involved in a legal proceeding, the University of Oregon has chosen to uphold a more protective standard with regard to confidential health care and survivors’ services information than may be required under state and federal laws, and professional codes of ethics. The following describes the standards that the University of Oregon will follow in relation to legal proceedings or anticipated legal proceedings.

  1. If information needs to be preserved, the University of Oregon will implement a litigation hold. General Counsel will direct appropriate university personnel outside of the Office of General Counsel to ‘hold in-place’ all potentially relevant confidential records and/or direct relevant Information Technology staff to institute an “IT hold” for such records, in order to ensure compliance with a litigation hold. Each unit that creates or maintains such records will develop a litigation hold-in-place procedure to be approved by General Counsel.
  2. In response to an actual or anticipated lawsuit, board complaint, or other legal proceeding initiated by a client/patient regarding the provision of health care and/or survivor's services (i.e. professional negligence related to these services), the University of Oregon may access and use that client/patient's confidential health and/or survivors’ services information related to such services to defend itself and those who provide services in a manner consistent with state and federal law, and professional ethics.  The University will access the information via a subpoena whenever it is possible to issue a subpoena.  If it is not possible to issue a subpoena, the University will provide the client/patient notice and an opportunity to object to accessing the information before any accessing of the information occurs.
  3. When the University of Oregon is a party (or may become a party) to a lawsuit with a claim that is not covered by paragraph #2, and receives a subpoena or request from an outside party for records that include confidential health care and/or survivors’ services information, the University, its health centers/clinics, providers, and confidential responders will, if there is a good faith basis under applicable law, resist subpoenas or other requests, notify the client/patient of the subpoena or request,  inform the client/patient of their right to seek independent legal advice, and release privileged information only in response to an order from a court or tribunal, a stipulated protective order that the client/patient has signed, or a written authorization from the client/patient.  Prior to any access by University officials, in cases of a disagreement with General Counsel, in order to ensure that the University respects legal and professional obligations to protect confidentiality a provider/custodian of record may request University funding for independent legal counsel concerning the disclosure of records. Denial of such a request may be appealed to the University President.
  4. In instances not covered by paragraph #2, if existing law (e.g., FERPA, HIPAA, state law) allows University officials to access a client/patient’s confidential health care and/or survivors’ services information, University officials will forgo access without a stipulated protective order that the client/patient has signed, a written authorization from the client/patient to use the records, or a court order. Prior to any access by University personnel, in cases of a disagreement with General Counsel, in order to ensure that the University respects legal and professional obligations to protect confidentiality a provider/custodian of record may request University funding for independent legal counsel concerning the disclosure of records. Denial of such a request may be appealed to the University President. 
  5. When the University of Oregon is a non-party in a legal proceeding (i.e., neither the plaintiff nor the defendant) and receives a subpoena for records that include confidential health care and/or survivors’ services information, the University of Oregon will, if there is a good faith basis under applicable law, resist subpoenas or other requests, notify the client/patient of the subpoena or request, inform the client/patient of their right to seek independent legal advice, and release privileged information only in response to  an order from a court or tribunal, a stipulated protective order that the client/patient has signed, or a written authorization from the client/patient. Prior to any access by University officials, in cases of a disagreement with General Counsel, in order to ensure that the University respects legal and professional obligations to protect confidentiality a provider/custodian of record may request University funding for independent legal counsel concerning the disclosure of records. Denial of such a request may be appealed to the University President.
  6. Nothing in this policy shall be construed to require those subject to this policy to violate any state or federal legal or ethical obligations.  Nor shall this policy be construed to limit the ability of a provider to act in the best interests of the provider’s client/patient, consistent with state and federal law.
  7. Nothing in this policy shall be construed to limit the ability of a University health center or clinic to obtain professional liability and/or general liability insurance coverage and comply with the terms of that coverage, including consulting outside counsel or other medical professionals for risk mitigation, or to establish, at the health center or clinic’s option, a risk management team that operates inside any center or clinic.  University employees selected by the center or clinic to participate on and provide support services to such a team (e.g., risk management, compliance, administration, information technology, billing) will have access to health and/or survivors’ services information only within the physical confines of the respective center and only after the name and any other identifying information, as much as is feasible in the circumstances, of the client/patient has been removed from such information.

Advice and Information for Clients and Patients
Confidentiality is a complex issue, and the issues can vary depending on the specific services that a client or patient receives, the records created as part of those services, and the laws that apply. Thus, it is essential that clients/patients discuss confidentiality with their specific providers. It is also important that clients and patients served by University of Oregon clinics, health centers, and confidential responders know who has access to information that clients/patients share with their providers, and under what conditions confidential information may be used or disclosed. University of Oregon health centers, clinics, and confidential responders will provide written information to every client/patient that describes the confidentiality of the client/patient's health care or survivors’ services information and provides a link to this policy.

Implementation and Review of University of Oregon Health Center, Clinic, or Confidential Responder Confidentiality Policies and Practices
Every health center, clinic, or confidential responder (i.e., unit) that creates, receives, maintains, or transmits confidential health information must have policies and practices in place that follow all applicable state and federal laws, reflect the highest professional standards of confidentiality, and comply with this policy.

Definitions

For purposes of this policy:

Confidential health and/or survivors’ services information is information that is “personally identifiable” to the client/patient at the time it is disclosed, as that term is used by the applicable state and federal law governing the specific information.

4.015               Institution Policy on Outside Activities and Related Compensation

Each institution shall adopt policies and procedures to implement IMD 4.011 to 4.015. Such policies and procedures shall:

(1) Include appropriate measures, such as one day per week, which define faculty time available for outside activities related to the faculty member's institutional responsibilities. Outside activities unrelated to institutional responsibilities and undertaken by faculty on personal time, regardless of whether compensated, are not subject to these Board of Higher Education and institution policies. However, if the faculty member, while on personal time, engages in outside activities that create a potential conflict of interest, the faculty member must provide written disclosure thereof in accordance with (4) and (5) below.

(2) Identify the name(s) or title(s) of institutional administrator(s) assigned responsibility for reviewing and acting on requests to engage in outside activities related to the faculty member's institutional responsibilities as referenced in (1) above.

(3) Identify and describe types of outside faculty activity related to faculty institutional responsibilities and associated funding sources which the institution approves as a class(es) and which will not require review and prior approval, such as health care faculty clinical activities, services as an expert witness, and services other than those identified in IMD 4.010(4) and (6) below. If, however, the particular activity under the class creates a potential conflict of interest, the faculty member shall provide a written disclosure thereof to a designated supervisor in accordance with (4) and (5) herein.

(4) Require faculty to disclose to the named institutional administrator(s) in writing, and to receive prior approval on a case-by-case basis, to engage in outside activities involving any or all of the following:

(a) Acceptance of compensation, or ownership of equity in the case of a private entity.

(b) Service in a line management position or participation in day-to-day operations of a private or public entity.

(c) Service in a key, continuing role in the scientific and technical activity of a private or public entity.

Institutional case-by-case approval will not be required if the activity is included within the scope of an institution-defined class as established under (3) above.

(5) Require that the faculty member's written disclosure, as referenced in (4) above, fully describe the:

(a) Type of work or consulting to be provided to the named entity;

(c) Anticipated time commitment;

(d) Expected benefits to the entity, faculty member, and institution;

(e) Use of institutional facilities and support personnel, if any, and method of reimbursing institution for both direct and indirect costs, if institution approves such use; and

(f) Financial arrangements pertaining to funding sources of compensation, including equity ownership and other forms of economic value provided the faculty member or any immediate member of the faculty member's family.

(6) Require the institutional administrator(s) to consider the following when reviewing written requests to engage in outside activities:

In cases where the time limits are to be exceeded, the faculty member shall disclose the amount of time in excess of the limits, and the institutional administrator(s) shall document in writing the rationale for approving the request to exceed the limits.

(e) Assurances that the outside activity does not substantially interfere with the faculty member's instructional, research, and other related institutional responsibilities, including those to students. Special attention must be given to the intellectual property interests of students who may create and claim ownership to such property developed in the process of completing their academic programs.

(f) Appropriateness of the use of institutional facilities and support personnel, if approved, including written documentation that the full cost thereof will be reimbursed to the institution.

(7) Establish the type, nature, and extent of the information required to be reported under (2) through (6) above, which shall be made a part of a faculty member's confidential personnel record.

(8) Provide a process whereby a faculty member dissatisfied with a decision of an authorized administrator may appeal that administrator's decision to another institutional authority. That authority shall be vested with power to make a final determination relative to authorization to engage in the outside activity.

(9) Provide for the institutional president to report to the Chancellor's Office by August 31 of each year any change in institutional policy on outside activities and evidence of procedures followed in monitoring faculty and family acceptance of compensation and equity for outside activities of the faculty member.

(11) Be submitted to the Chancellor's Office for review and approval prior to adoption.

4.020               Travel Awards and Bonuses

(1) Employees traveling on System business must use routes, schedules, and airlines that provide the lowest rates and the most efficient travel.

(2) Because the cost of recordkeeping outweighs the nominal monetary benefit to the System, frequent-flyer bonuses earned by employees traveling on System business are part of the employment package and may be used by employees as they choose unless the institution determines otherwise for specific employees or the terms of a grant or sponsorship do not permit.

4.021               Use of Telephones

(1) System campus and cellular telephones are intended primarily for conducting System business. Notwithstanding, employees may use System telephones for personal calls when that use will be more efficient to the overall conduct of the System’s business.

4.022               Use of Computers

Personal use of computing facilities, Internet connections, and e-mail is acceptable as long as it does not interfere with an employee’s ability to perform job duties or with the ability of other users to carry out their job duties or does not violate the other provisions of acceptable use contained in institution or Chancellor’s Office policy.

Undergraduate Transfer and Articulation

Enactment & Revision History: 

Became a University of Oregon policy by operation of law on July 1, 2014. 

Former OUS Internal Management Directive 2.035.

Policy: 

The Board affirms the importance for Oregonians to have maximum program articulation, course and credit transferability, and recognition of proficiencies that can be demonstrated. The Board recognizes that this is a shared responsibility among education providers and individuals. Toward achievement of these goals, the Board expects that:

In a changing environment with growing access to electronically delivered coursework, and transfer students presenting transcripts from multiple providers, System institutions should be flexible in accepting academic credits from accredited entities. Institutional practices should balance the integrity of a specific System institution’s degree with the reality of the dynamic educational marketplace (so long as admission, degree program, and graduation requirements are met).

Each institution shall regularly update and publish information regarding course equivalencies between the institution’s courses and partner community college courses and, in other ways, be responsive to transfer students’ information and advising needs. Each institution shall also be guided by statewide agreements that enable broad-scale student transfer to occur among all System institutions and community colleges in Oregon.

Each institution shall develop policies and practices that accept a reasonable amount of professional-technical coursework as electives or related work into baccalaureate degree programs.

Where appropriate and feasible, institutions shall develop specific articulation agreements and co-admission/co-enrollment programs with community colleges and other partners in order to promote the orderly flow of students between and among institutions.

Through such mechanisms as the Joint Boards’ Articulation Commission, the OUS Academic Council, and the Council of Instructional Administrators of Oregon community colleges additional transfer degree programs should be considered and, if appropriate, developed to prepare community college students for transfer into a broad array of baccalaureate programs.
