JAT Equipment Use Policy
The School of Journalism and Telecommunications maintains certain audio and video equipment for use by its students. This equipment may only be used for work related specifically to courses in our curricula under the supervision of JAT faculty and for projects supervised by JAT faculty.
The school's equipment may specifically NOT be used for:
-- work associated with internships (including JAT 399 internships); it is the internship site's responsibility to provide any needed equipment;
-- work for UK courses outside the School of Journalism and Telecommunications;
-- projects for extracurricular organizations;
-- material for student portfolios, resume tapes, etc.;
-- work being done for a job, volunteer work, etc., whether on- or off-campus.
This policy is also in effect for use of the School's editing and audio bays. Students found using School equipment in violation of this policy will lose their equipment use privileges for the remainder of the semester during which the violation occurs.
Under NO circumstances will the School's equipment be available for checkout by students not enrolled in those courses in the School of Journalism and Telecommunications that have been identified as equipment-eligible. If non-JAT students are found using JAT equipment, they will be billed for that usage and referred to the university administration for disciplinary action.
Students are responsible for the equipment they check out. If equipment is damaged, lost or stolen due to student negligence (such as leaving equipment in a car overnight or the like), the student is responsible for the repair or replacement cost of the equipment. Please note that the responsibility for the equipment is with the student who checked the equipment out, even if another student was using it at the time the damage occurred.
