Council Coverage

The coverage of the April 24 University Council meeting will be included in next week's issue of Almanac.

Open Expression Monitors

The University is seeking volunteers to serve as Open Expression monitors for the 2002-2003 academic year. In support of Penn's Open Expression Policy, monitors work as observers at designated campus public meetings, activities, and events both to help ensure "the continuing openness and effectiveness of channels of communication among members of the University community on questions of common interest" and to encourage and facilitate free and open expression within the guidelines of the policy.

University faculty and staff who would like to serve as monitors are encouraged to note their interest via e-mail to Connie Gordon, at or by phone at (215) 898-6081.

PennNet Host Security Policy

The Network Policy Committee's Critical PennNet Host Security Policy, first approved in May of 2000 and published in Almanac, September 19, 2000, has been revised, effective May 1, 2002. Compliance dates were relaxed and more detailed compliance options added in response to suggestions received during public comment.

The revised policy can be found online at .

Down to the Wire Reminder

There are only three weekly issues remaining in the spring semester schedule. If you need to publish information of concern to faculty and staff, please contact Almanac to reserve space. -- Ed
