KUMC web server (kumc.edu) relationships with the greater community

Uses of kumc.edu
The kumc.edu web site is specifically and exclusively intended as an information-delivery tool, not as a platform for advocacy of social, political, or other viewpoints.

Not-for-profit organizations

  • providing access to training through the training sessions regularly offered to KU Medical Center faculty and staff;
  • providing hard disk storage consistent with the reasonable requirements of the not-for-profit entity; and
  • providing server accounts and account management

The not-for-profit entity will be responsible for creating and maintaining all of its documents and for abiding by all policy and procedure affecting kumc.edu authors and document providers.
