Access Information

What is Campus Wide Access (CWA) to the University administrative systems developed for the VP for Finance and Administration and the VP for Student Affairs?

IMS (Information Management System), QMF (Query Management Facility) and ARROW (Administrative Report Retrieval Over the Web), are used to display or retrieve data.

System access is coordinated through data custodians, individuals who represent each of the administrative areas being accessed. Secure access to this data is maintained through client education, data custodian procedures and user identification (UserID) controls.

Access to these administrative data systems is granted on a "need to know" basis related to an employee's responsibilities within his/her department at the University. Termination from the University results in deletion of that access. Transfer between departments includes deletion of an employee's data access for the old department and creation of access to accommodate the responsibilities being assumed in the new department.
