IUP Policy and Guidelines

IUP has established official policies and guidelines regarding copyright as part of an effort by the State System to ensure that every member university has formal policies in place.

Responsible management of copyrighted materials used in the classroom (whether online or face-to-face) and adherence to intellectual property law is an essential component of instructional design. Classroom materials are available in multiple formats and through multiple mediums, which has increased the complexity of managing copyrighted materials for teaching purposes.

University policies and guidelines are made available below. Visit Copyright and Fair Use at IUP for more information on University policy.
