In support of instruction, research, and administrative functions, the University of Arizona encourages the use of the campus email system to share information, improve communication, transact university business, and exchange ideas.
The University of Arizona encourages the use of the campus email system and respects the privacy of users. It recognizes that academic freedom and freedom of speech are important aspects of the campus email policy. The UA does not routinely inspect or monitor email. However, it may deny access to the campus email system and may inspect, monitor, or disclose email when circumstances indicate such action is necessary.
Access to the campus email system is ordinarily limited to faculty, staff, and students for purposes that conform to this policy; these accounts are created automatically when an employee is hired or when a student attends a preview or transfer registration session and is enrolled in at least one course. Examples of other categories which may be eligible to request an account include: emeriti faculty, exchange students, participants in educational programs, contractors, independent consultants, official campus student organizations, and departments.
