New Institution Online Resource (IOR) Governance Policy

New Institution Online Resource (IOR) Governance Policy

Per USG request, Georgia College & State University has developed an Institution Online Resource (IOR) Governance policy. The policy went into effect January 1, 2023.  This policy requires all departments to submit an annual inventory of all online resources owned or controlled by the department, including, but not limited to, domains, social media, websites (both on and off campus hosted), and web and mobile apps. The inventory should not include non-public facing IT resources, personal webpages and/or personal social media accounts.

Each department is required to submit their IOR inventory through the online submission form no later than May 31 each year. 

To help identify online resources and train in the new process, University Communications will host four drop-in, drop-out open office hour sessions to answer questions and to help with the submission process. We will hold open training sessions on: 

Additional resources, including our online training documentation and submissions guidelines can be found on MyGCSU. You can view the IOR Governance Policy in our policy manual.
