Harvard Sponsored Role Policy

Harvard Sponsored Role Policy

Policy Statement

This document describes the policy and practices for assigning a Harvard Sponsored Role to an individual through HUIT Identity and Access Management (IAM) systems. Harvard Sponsored Roles were defined to describe non-employee, non-student affiliations an individual may have in the Harvard community that support granting the individual access to resources, both digital and physical, under an appropriate level of oversight by the University. Harvard Sponsored Roles are necessary to clearly differentiate affiliations to the University that are distinct from employee, student or alumni roles. This policy clarifies the responsibilities of participants in the Harvard Sponsored Role process for the stewardship of the sponsored role data at the University and the use of access granted to individuals by their action.
