Policy on Ownership of Student Work
The School of Architecture often seeks to publicize work done by students and faculty to promote its programs, for recruitment, and for public edification. Likewise, the School is required to show examples of student work to accreditation teams. It is considered an honor and duty for students to have their work selected for those purposes and thus contributes to the advancement of the School. Therefore, students are encouraged to recognize the value to both the School and to the ownership policy stated below.
Student work that is performed to meet the requirements of courses in which students are enrolled and resulting from instruction by faculty and staff employed by the School is understood to be the property of the School. At any time, the School may retain or recap student work for its accreditation, exhibition, teaching, and publication purposes. In keeping with proper scholarly ethical standards, the authorship of any published and exhibited work will be appropriately credited to the student.
The School will give students the opportunity to copy for their records work kept by the School. The School may also request and keep student’s portfolios* and other works produced by students for grades. Students who wish to retain a copy of such portfolios and/or work samples are free to do so at their own expense. If the school finds that the student’s work is no longer needed for public relations or educational purposes, an attempt will be made to release the work to the student. However, the school cannot guarantee that the work will be returned in its original condition. No commercial use of student work is allowed without the expressed permission of the University.
*For purpose of this policy “portfolio” means original works and copies of photographs of models.
