The Information Security Policy Manual is available in PDF.

The University of Connecticut developed information security policies to protect the availability, integrity, and confidentiality of University information technology (IT) resources. While these policies apply to all faculty, staff, and students of the University, they are primarily applicable to Data Stewards, those that manage access to data and IT resources, and those who use University IT resources.

The University expects all employees, students and users to adhere to the policies herein. No set of policies can address all scenarios of IT security; therefore, these policies address the most common aspects of security. We cannot eliminate malevolent behavior or irresponsibility, but we can guide users and administrators toward responsible decisions and actions.

The Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) manages the University’s information security activities. The CISO works in cooperation with University employees whose responsibilities address information technology and information security.

In order to protect resources from threats and ensure compliance with applicable laws and industry standards, the University will manage and regulate networks and other IT resources.

All employees must immediately report lost or stolen technology resources to the University Police Department (860-486-4800), the Information Security Office (860-486-8255), and the Office of the Controller (860-486-2937).

The University’s IT resources, whether owned or contracted, will be configured to meet the requirements set forth in these policies. Agreements that involve a third party accessing or managing the University’s IT resources shall comply with all of the requirements specified in these policies.

Owners of IT resources are responsible for keeping computer systems protected from activities that could compromise the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of the resources. Owners shall perform regular and timely computer maintenance, which includes, but is not limited to, installation of software patches, and updates to malware and virus protection. The automatic implementation of patches and updates at regular intervals will be utilized for all capable devices. Owners of IT resources should be aware of the business and availability requirements for their systems, and owners shall create appropriate documentation and processes to meet the requirements outlined in these policies.

University managers should direct faculty and staff to the information security policies and discuss the impacts and outcomes of the policies for their specific areas. Upon hire, employees will sign a “Statement of Policy Acknowledgement” which will be administered and maintained by the Human Resources department.

The regulations of The Student Code remain applicable to students and their registered organizations, regarding information security:
“Unauthorized possession, duplication, or misuse of University property or other personal or public property, including but not limited to records, electronic files, telecommunications systems, forms of identification, and keys.” (Student Code, III. Proscribed Conduct, Section B, 16)

Contact

Please email security@uconn.edu for questions, concerns or general feedback.

Please email abuse@uconn.edu to report any security breaches or incidents.

Enforcement

Violations of information security policy may result in appropriate disciplinary measures in accordance with local, state, and federal laws, as well as University Laws and By-Laws, General Rules of Conduct for All University Employees, applicable collective bargaining agreements, and the University of Connecticut Student Conduct Code.

For purposes of protecting the University’s network and information technology resources, the Information Security Office may temporarily remove or block any system, device, or person from the University network that is reasonably suspected of violating University information security policy. These non-punitive measures will be taken only to maintain business continuity and information security, and users of the University’s information technology resources will be contacted for resolution.

Any individual who suspects a violation of this policy may report it to:
• The Information Security Office: (860) 486-8255
• The Office of University Compliance: (860) 486-2530
• Anonymously through the Reportline: (888) 685-2637 or https://www.compliance-helpline.com/uconncares.jsp.

Use Of Space Heaters in University Buildings

Title: Use Of Space Heaters in University Buildings
Policy Owner: Environmental Health & Safety/UConn Fire Department
Applies to: Faculty, Staff, Students, Others
Campus Applicability: Storrs and Regional Campuses, and the Law School
Effective Date: February 6, 2012
For More Information, Contact Division of Environmental Health and Safety
Contact Information: (860) 486-3613
Official Website: http://www.ehs.uconn.edu/

PURPOSE

As stated in the University’s Health and Safety Policy, the University of Connecticut is committed to providing a healthful and safe environment for all activities under its jurisdiction. In keeping with this commitment, the University has developed this policy to protect the University community and its visitors from the significant fire and workplace safety risks posed by the use of space heaters.  This policy is in keeping with the requirements of the Connecticut Life Safety and Building codes and ConnOSHA and CT Department of Public Health regulations.

SCOPE

This policy applies to the use of space heaters by faculty, staff, students, and others in University-owned buildings at the Storrs and regional campuses and at the Law School.

POLICY STATEMENT

Space heaters pose serious fire and electrical hazards, and are not efficient from an energy use standpoint; therefore, the use of space heaters at the University is strongly discouraged. Their use should be reserved for times of heating system failures rather than as a means for supplementing an existing heating system.

University building occupants should first contact Facilities Operations Work Order Control (6-3113) to request assistance in adjusting the temperature of an area.  If Facilities Operations personnel determine that the work area cannot be heated to the satisfaction of the occupant(s), the temporary use of space heaters will be allowed with the following exceptions:
Space heaters are not permitted in residential occupancies unless issued by permit through the UConn Fire Department in emergencies.  Space heaters are not permitted, under any circumstances, in laboratories, inpatient units, storage areas, or areas not actively occupied by people.  However, space heaters will be permitted in laboratory office spaces.

ENFORCEMENT

The University Fire Department and the Department of Environmental Health and Safety reserve the right to inspect and declare “unapproved” any space heater that creates a safety hazard or is inappropriate to a particular location, based on specific circumstances or legal requirements.  If warranted, space heaters may be removed from service and taken to a designated storage area for later collection by its owner and subsequent removal from the University.

Violations of this policy may result in appropriate disciplinary measures in accordance with University Laws and By-Laws, General Rules of Conduct for All University Employees, applicable collective bargaining agreements, and the University of Connecticut Student Conduct Code.

PROCEDURES

Approved Heaters

In order to ensure that all space heaters meet current safety guidelines, the University Fire Department and the Department of Environmental Health and Safety have approved a limited selection of space heaters for use within the University, which are available at Central Stores.

See approved space heaters here.
Effective Fall Semester 2003, all other space heaters currently in use must be taken out of service.  Department-owned heaters must be turned in as surplus to Central Storrs.  Privately owned heaters must be removed from the University.

Safe Use and Care

  • BEFORE OPERATING A HEATER, ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURER’S OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS.
  • To prevent overloading an electrical circuit, a space heater must be plugged into a circuit that is rated for 15 amps or more.
  • Always turn off a heater and unplug it when you leave the office.  NEVER leave an operating heater unattended.
  • Before use, ensure that the heater is clean and not covered with dust.  The cord must be in good condition and not frayed.
  • NEVER use an extension cord or power strip with a space heater.  It should be plugged directly into a permanent wall outlet (receptacle). Exception: Radiant Panel heaters may be used with extension cords or power strips rated for 15 amps or more.
  • Never run a power cord under a carpet or floor mat.
  • NEVER use a heater where flammable materials or vapors may be present.
  • Do not use space heaters under desks or in other enclosed spaces.
  • Do not place a heater near combustible materials such as papers, fabric, plastics, or office furniture.
  • Do not place a heater in or near wet areas or in high traffic areas such as exit ways.
  • ALWAYS maintain safe distance clearances around space heaters, as directed by the manufacturers’ instructions.
  • Inspect space heaters at least annually and have them repaired, as needed, by a qualified electrician.
  • Heaters that cannot be repaired must be discarded with the plug cut off to prevent inadvertent use by others.
  • Avoid placing space heaters near room thermostats.

Emergency Closing Policy

PURPOSE AND APPLICATION OF POLICY

During inclement weather and other emergency situations at the University of Connecticut, the safety of our students, faculty, and staff is paramount. At the same time, the University has very important research, teaching, service, and outreach missions, and must maintain continuous and effective business operations. With due consideration to safety, the University will remain open and operate normally to the greatest extent possible. Faculty, staff, and students should evaluate their own circumstances carefully, exercise appropriate judgment, and take responsibility for their safety when making decisions during inclement weather.

The purpose of this policy is to provide direction to the University community in the rare circumstances when the University Administration decides to close some or all University campuses, delay opening the University or particular campuses, release employees early, or cancel classes. This policy also explains how employees will be notified of the University’s decisions, and clarifies expectations regarding attendance and performance of job-related duties. The policy applies to the entire University community, including administration, faculty, staff, and students, at all campuses except UConn Health.

POLICY STATEMENT

Decisions to alter the University’s normal operations and schedule for all campuses are made jointly by the President’s Office, Provost’s Office, and Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer (EVPA/CFO). Decisions about such alterations are made with full input from Public Safety and Facilities Operations and Building Services for all campuses. Careful consideration will be given to the particular conditions and circumstances at each campus, and decisions will account for variations that may exist among the situations at different campuses.

When the Governor of Connecticut closes state agencies, releases state employees from work, or restricts road travel due to weather conditions, the University implements releases or cancellations to conform with this guidance.

When the University is open and operating normally, all employees are expected to make every effort commensurate with their personal safety to be at work. Individual academic departments and administrative units are not permitted to close and release employees. Those decisions will be made on a university-wide basis. Departments, regional campuses, and units may cancel special events they sponsor at their discretion, and are responsible for communicating such cancellations.

If an emergency occurs that may require an adjustment in work schedules for an individual unit or small number of units (such as a power outage or flood in a single building), employees should work from another location if possible. Supervisors must obtain permission from the President’s Office, Provost’s Office, and Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer (EVPA/CFO), as appropriate, before releasing employees from work for more than a short period of time.

Notification

The University will make announcements about closings or delayed openings as soon as feasible, and generally no later than 5 a.m. When conditions change rapidly or unexpectedly, however, the University may need to make or update decisions about classes and business operations on short notice.

UConn’s Alert website, alert.uconn.edu, is the definitive source of information about the University’s operating status. All announcements regarding changes to the University’s operating schedule will be posted to this site as soon as decisions are made.

In addition to the Alert website, text message alerts may be issued regarding closings, cancellations, or delays. UConn community members should register to receive the University’s text message alerts.

Community members may also call the University’s 24-hour emergency closing information number, (860) 486-3768, to check the University’s operating status for all campuses. Second and third shift employees are urged to call this number for information.

Individual units are responsible for communicating decisions about whether any special events they sponsor are postponed or canceled. Community members should contact the sponsoring units directly for information about such events. This applies to athletic events, performances, conferences, lectures, presentations, workshops, and other events hosted by a sub-unit of the University.

Expectations for Employees

This section summarizes the information applicable to:

  • All Employees (except essential/emergency support services staff)
  • Class Instructors
  • Essential/Emergency Support Services Staff

All Employees (except essential/emergency support services staff)

When the University is open and operating normally, employees are expected to report to work. During inclement weather, employees are expected to plan accordingly, including accounting for extra time needed to travel to and from work. If an employee decides not to remain at or report to work because of concerns about travelling safely, employees may use vacation, personal, or other accrued time without advance approval. Employees must promptly notify their supervisors in these situations. Employees who anticipate childcare concerns may discuss in advance the possibility of flex time or telecommuting with their supervisors.

When the University directs employees not to report to campus during a closing, delay, or cancellation, employees will not be charged leave unless their time off was already scheduled and approved. If an employee is on a scheduled day off due to sick leave, vacation, personal time, earned time, or leave of absence without pay during an official University closing, delay, or early release, the employee’s time will be charged accordingly.

Since employees who are not on a pre-approved leave during a closing would normally be present at work, employees are expected to be accessible and responsive to their supervisors as needed during their regularly scheduled work hours. Supervisors may require that employees check and respond to email regularly and respond to work calls, and may expect that assigned work that can be accomplished remotely is completed on time regardless of emergency cancellations. Likewise, supervisors may make reasonable adjustments to be able to continue University business, including holding meetings by teleconference and handling normal business by email, and employees who would normally be present at work may be required to participate.

Class Instructors

All faculty at all campuses must abide by the University’s decision to remain open. If the University does not cancel classes, faculty are expected to hold classes as scheduled, except in circumstances when a faculty member determines that he or she is unable to travel safely to campus. In these exceptional cases, the faculty member must notify his or her dean and department head, and must also notify all students in the class. Faculty must not cancel class prior to the University’s decision about whether the University will alter its normal schedule. Faculty may elect to hold classes virtually using online methods.

Only the instructor of record for a class may decide to cancel a class. Teaching Assistants may not make independent decisions to cancel classes or other activities related to classes, but must consult with the faculty member for the course.

Instructional time that is cancelled is expected to be made up in accordance with the By-Laws, Rules, and Regulations of the University Senate. The University’s academic calendar includes specified “emergency closing make-up dates.” Faculty who plan to use these times to make up class must inform students as soon as possible and reserve a classroom through the Registrar’s Office. Faculty may also make up classes at other times, but must be sensitive to students’ availability to attend.

Faculty should respect the decisions of commuting students who decide not to travel to campus, or to leave class early in order to get home safely, and provide options for them to make up missed work. The Dean of Students Office is available to assist faculty and students with concerns about missed work.

Essential/Emergency Support Services Staff

Operations including public safety, residential and dining services, health services, animal care, facility maintenance, information technology services, student support services, transportation, and other important services may be required to continue even in severe weather or during other circumstances that require the University to close.

The University may designate employees as “Essential” employees (also known as “Emergency Support Services Staff”) if it determines their job functions are necessary or potentially necessary to conduct the University’s business even when the University is not operating normally. Employees designated as essential are typically expected to report to or remain at work when the University has a delayed opening, early release, or closure.

Individual Departments determine which, if any, of their employees are essential. Further, Departments may require all essential employees to report during any closure. Alternatively, Departments may develop a procedure that limits the number of essential employees required to report based on the nature or duration of the closure, the nature of the functions the Department performs, and the level of staffing needed. This approach is typically implemented through an “on call” notification system or a rotating assignment.

Departments are responsible for notifying essential employees annually of their designation. Employees hired into positions that are essential are first notified of their designation at the time of hire. In addition, the business needs of the University may change in ways that require other employees to be deemed essential even if they were not designated so at hire. In such cases, the Department will notify affected employees at the time of their designation. By October 1st of each year, Departments with essential employees must provide a list of these employees to the Office of Faculty and Staff Labor Relations and the Department of Human Resources.

Unless provided in the collective bargaining agreement or authorized by the Governor, the University is prohibited from awarding compensatory time or extra compensation to essential employees for working during their regularly scheduled hours when the University has a delay, early release, or is closed.

ENFORCEMENT

Violations of this policy may result in appropriate disciplinary measures in accordance with University Laws and By-Laws, General Rules of Conduct for All University Employees, applicable collective bargaining agreements, and the University of Connecticut Student Code.

RELATED PROCEDURES AND POLICIES

Time and attendance procedures for employees and supervisors are posted on the Payroll Department website at www.payroll.uconn.edu.

Requirements with respect to instructional time and making up time are defined in the By-Laws, Rules, and Regulations of the Senate (http://policy.uconn.edu/2011/05/19/by-laws-rules-and-regulations-of-the-university-senate/) and the University’s Credit Hour policy (http://policy.uconn.edu/2012/08/22/credit-hour).

  1. Central Stores Surplus (“the Surplus Department”) is responsible for administering the University’s Surplus Program. Per Public Act 91-256, the University of Connecticut was given the authority to disposition surplus, unused and/or unserviceable equipment and supplies.  The Surplus Department will determine whether items sent to surplus will be reused or recycled. Under no circumstances may University property be discarded without a completed Form ACT-39 approved by either the Director of Logistics Administration or the Manager of the Surplus Department. To be in compliance, departments declaring items surplus must fill out an ACT-39, and forward it to the Surplus Department, U-5268. The ACT-39 Forms may be ordered from Central Stores at no charge, item number 72890033. Or departments may declare items surplus via the Kuali (KFS) Capital Assets System. The procedures outlined below must be followed.
    • REFRIGERATION UNITS: Before sending refrigeration units to the Surplus Department, departments must submit a work order to Facilities Operations for removing refrigerants from the unit(s). The removal is required per state and federal environmental regulations and ensures the safety of ground water and the ozone. Departments must forward proof of the work order number with the completed Form ACT 39 to the Surplus Department before the Surplus Department will schedule pickup. After pickup, the Surplus Department will deliver the refrigeration units to a centralized location to have the refrigerants removed prior to being recycled.
    • MOTORS: Before sending motors to the Surplus Department, departments must submit a work order to Facilities Operations for removing oils from the motors. The removal is required per state and federal environmental regulations and ensures the safety of ground water. Departments must forward proof of the completed removal with the completed Form ACT 39 to the Surplus Department before the Surplus Department will schedule pickup.
    • COMPUTERS: CERTIFICATION OF DATA INACCESSIBILITY: Before sending  computers/electronic media to surplus, all stored electronic data must be permanently destroyed. To assist with this requirement, a Data Wipe Utility package may be ordered from Central Stores at no charge, item number 78610005.  In addition to completing the ACT-39, departments must also complete a Certification of Data Inaccessibility, available on the Central Stores website. The completion of the certification form is necessary to comply with confidentiality and copyright laws. Both forms must be completed before the Surplus Department can remove computers. Departments may also declare computers/electronic media surplus via the Kuali (KFS) Capital Assets System.
  2. The Surplus Department will attempt to remove surplused items within one (1) month from the receipt of the ACT-39.  Departments wishing to remove their own items to Surplus must schedule an appointment with The Surplus Department, (860) 486-3094.  Under no circumstances can any item of property belonging to the University of Connecticut be “scrapped” without an ACT-39 approved by the Director of Logistics Administration or the Manager of The Surplus Department.
  3. The Surplus Department will determine whether the item(s) surplused will be recycled or made available.
  4. The University may reserve certain surplus items, such as file cabinets and selected computers, for its own internal reuse.
  5. Most items made available may be inspected at the Surplus Property Showroom, 6 Ahern Lane, Mansfield Depot, CT.  Showroom hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1-3 pm. Employee identification must be shown to gain admittance.
  6. University departments may obtain surplus property through the completion of an ACT-39, available at the Surplus Property Showroom. Departments must provide their 7 digit Kuali (KFS) number.  The Surplus Department will deliver transferred items, if necessary, to University departments within 1 month from the ACT-39 date.
  7. After 30 days, surplus items not transferred are eligible for alternate means of disposition by the Surplus Department:
    1. Public Sale Items may be offered for public sale through the auction process or at a storefront location.
    2. Other State Agencies may visit the  Surplus Property Showroom or the storefront location to obtain University surplus items.  Payment can be made with a State of Connecticut Transfer Invoice, Form CO-608.  Other State agencies are responsible for transportation of transferred property.
    3. Scrap Items may be scrapped, either through the existing University recycling program, or by other processes.  Items designated as scrap may not be given away to any University employee or to any other interested party.

Reimbursement of Recruitment Expenses Policy and Procedures

Title: Reimbursement of Recruitment Expenses Policy and Procedures
Policy Owner: Committee formed by the Office of the Provost
Applies to: Faculty
Campus Applicability:  All Programs at all Campuses except UConn Health
Effective Date: August 7, 2013
For More Information, Contact Workforce Solutions/ Office of the Provost
Contact Information: (860) 486-3034
Official Website: http://hr.uconn.edu/

Reason for Policy

The University recognizes the competitive nature of the recruitment and hiring process, and, therefore, grants departments the flexibility to pay for or reimburse recruitment expenses for faculty or management-exempt administrator positions.

The hiring process consists of three phases: the interview phase, the offer and acceptance phase, and the move phase. The interview and offer and acceptance phases constitute the recruitment process.  For expenses incurred in connection with the move phase, please see the Reimbursement of Moving Expenses Policy. Depending on the phase, payments vary and are subject to different tax rules.

This policy allows for reimbursement and/or direct pay of one trip per recruitment phase.  Reimbursements for additional visits must be authorized by the President and/or Provost.

The Interview Phase Policy Statement

The interview phase commences upon the first interview and ends upon extension of a written offer to the candidate.  The date the request to hire is submitted is considered the extension of a written offer.

Any department seeking to recruit for a position of sufficient importance may, with the approval of the Dean, Director or Department Head, pay full or partial travel expenses of candidates who must travel to interview for the position. All costs of the interview are the responsibility of the department.

Following approval by the Dean, Director or Department Head, the department may proceed with arrangements for interviews. All candidates should be advised of allowable expenses prior to the interview.  Payments or reimbursements for companions during the interview phase are not permitted.

The University’s Travel and Entertainment Policies and Procedures apply to candidate searches. Costs for airline tickets may be charged to the University contracted travel agency. Please refer to the University’s Travel and Entertainment Policies and Procedures for additional information regarding approved class of travel.

Procedure

Prior to the candidate’s visit to the University, or as soon as feasible, the sponsoring department should set up the candidate as a vendor using the Vendor Create process in the Kuali Financial System (KFS).  After the vendor has been created and the trip has been completed, a Disbursement Voucher needs to be initiated by the department.  Payment will disbursed by the Accounts Payable Department after appropriate routing and approval through KFS.  Claims for reimbursement must be itemized and original receipts supporting all claims must be included. The following information should also be included in the Disbursement Voucher:

  1. Vendor Number
  2. Date of interview
  3. Title of position
  4. Search number
  5. Itemization of expenses
  6. KFS Account Number and Object Code to be charged
  7. All supporting receipts must be scanned and attached to the Disbursement Voucher in KFS

The Offer and Acceptance Phase Policy Statement

The offer and acceptance phase occurs between the date of the extension of a written offer and the move phase, which is defined as the final one-way trip of the selected candidate and their family to the primary duty station.

Once the job offer has been extended, and with the approval of the Dean, Director or Department Head, the following offer and acceptance related expenses may be requested for reimbursement for the employee and one immediate family member defined as a spouse or child:

  1. Transportation (please refer to Part 2 and Part 3 of the Travel and Entertainment Policies and Procedure.
  2. Lodging (please refer to Part 4 the Travel and Entertainment Policies and Procedures for guidelines regarding accommodations)
  3. Meals (please refer to Part 5 of the Travel and Entertainment Policy and Procedure)

Such expenses incurred in connection with the offer and acceptance phase are considered Nonqualified (Taxable) Expenses subject to withholding of applicable income taxes, social security and Medicare taxes.  Reimbursements are included in taxable income and reported on the annual Form W-2. Any expenses incurred through any direct pay vendor, including Nathan Hale Inn or any contracted University booking agencies for air travel, need to be properly classified and reported to the Payroll Department as taxable income by the University department incurring the cost for the expenses or sponsoring the search.

Procedure

Requests for reimbursement of expenses incurred during the offer and acceptance phase should be submitted to the Payroll Department on the Recruitment Expense Reimbursement- RE form.  The Payroll Department will review the request to ensure compliance with this policy.  Reimbursement requests that do not have the required two signatures will not be processed.

All claims for expense reimbursement must be supported by original receipts. Payment will be included in the employee’s paycheck.

Please Note: Reimbursements using UConn Foundation funds, or other private sources, will be remitted to the University and paid to the employee as if they were University funds. Departments are permitted to supplement the cost of recruitment expenses from their own departmental funds.

Approval

The Board of Trustees originally approved the Reimbursement of Recruitment and Moving Expenses Policy on July 1, 2003. The Board of Trustees approved the Reimbursement of Recruitment Expenses Policy and Procedures on August 7, 2013.

Purpose

All University publications describing or inviting participation in UConn programs or activities must contain one of the non-discrimination statements set forth below. The inclusion of the non-discrimination statement is required by federal regulations and is designed to make clear to current and future participants, beneficiaries, enrollees, applicants, patients, visitors and members of the public the University’s commitment to equal opportunity and access to its programs, activities, and health programs.

The term “publications” includes, but is not limited to, printed, electronic or online materials or documents. With the understanding that publications are produced in different formats and sizes, including printed and electronic, the University has developed two forms of the non-discrimination statements: long and short. The selected form of the non-discrimination statement is generally dependent on the availability of space.

Effort should be given to publish the long form to the maximum extent feasible. When options to provide the long form have been exhausted, the short form may be considered.

The non-discrimination statement is embedded within the footer of all University website pages, therefore a non-discrimination statement is not required on individual departmental website pages.

Any questions related to the University’s non-discrimination, AA/EEO policies, and reasonable accommodations process may be directed to the Office of Institutional Equity at (860) 486-2943 or equity@uconn.edu.

Health Program or Activity Communications (Patient-Facing)

General Information

This section applies only to those University units that meet the definition of “covered entity” as defined in Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act and their communications specific to patients or anticipated patients (i.e. communications aimed at members of the public advertising patient-related programs, services or activities). These requirements are specific to the following:

  • UConn Health – John Dempsey Hospital (JDH), UConn Medical Group (UMG), School of Dental Medicine Outpatient Clinics and all other UConn Health patient-related clinics and services;
  • UConn Student Health Services (Storrs campus);
  • UConn Speech and Hearing Clinic; and
  • UConn Fire Department.

Publications and communications of health programs or activities subject to Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act (covered entities) must include one of the non-discrimination statements set forth below.  The inclusion of the non-discrimination statement is specifically required by Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act and is designed to advance health equity and reduce health care disparities.

University units subject to Section 1557 must determine, within reason, which of their communications and publications are “significant” in the context of their health programs and activities. Examples of publications and communications considered to be “significant” include applications to participate in, or receive benefits or services from, a covered entity’s health program or activity, as well as written correspondence related to an individual’s rights, benefits, or services, including correspondence requiring a response.  Effort must primarily be given to publish the long version as stated below.

Additional guidance and information regarding Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act is available at https://www.hhs.gov/civil-rights/for-individuals/section-1557/index.html.
