What is the Information Security Program (ISP) at W&L? (link)

The ISP and the ISP Committee were organized at the direction of the Provost in 2003 to comply with the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) and to implement the “Safeguards Rule” issued by the Federal Trade Commission. The ISP Committee is chaired by the ISP Coordinator and the Committee has responsibility, in advising the Provost, for the ISP. The original program scope was intentionally broader than necessary for simple legal compliance, and requires all departments to have written procedures documenting the safeguards used to protect the University’s information assets.

What general phone information do you have for those living in a Fraternity and the International House? (link)

Basic telephone service on the University system has been provided in your room fee. The phone jack in your room is active and will accept a standard home phone or similar device.

The phone service in the fraternity and International house is slightly different from the phone service in the dorms. Dorm phones are on a digital service but our off-campus buildings are on an analog system. Because analog systems do not require a special phone, residents of our off-campus housing provide their own phones and may use any basic home type phone device. The other differences mainly involve the keystrokes necessary to execute various phone system and PhoneMail functions. Please see other items in this section for details.
