Role accounts are granted to a role or organizational position rather than to an individual for business purposes. A role account may be shared amongst authorized users as determined by the appropriate Department Chair/unit head. Information contained in these accounts may be accessed and disseminated upon the request of the Chair/unit head to the Director, Client and Research Services (CaRS). Users are advised that role accounts should not be used to store personal information as they are subject to access should the University need to do so to conduct its operations.
