Roane State Policies

Equipment Checkout Information

Faculty are expected to take reasonable care of borrowed equipment. Equipment may be borrowed for a limited time, should not be treated as personal property, and should not be used for personal or commercial purposes. Faculty accept full responsibility for borrowed items and their accessories (covers, cords, chargers, etc.) during the lending period. Faculty agree to notify CTAT within 48 hours if the equipment is damaged, lost, or stolen and are expected to pay a replacement fee in order to compensate for the loss or damage. Please note that any media or data files saved to any CTAT device will be deleted upon return to CTAT. Faculty borrowing equipment will be asked to participate in a brief survey to help CTAT staff gather data on how our instructional technology is being used and how we can improve our services to faculty members.

Equipment & Study Abroad Trips

CTAT has a number of video cameras available for students to use on international trips. Instructors can also request video cameras from the International Education Department (opens in new window). Faculty members agree to be responsible for the distribution and return of equipment borrowed for study abroad trips. Each student will be held personally responsible for any loss or damage to equipment. Faculty and students agree to complete a written statement explaining what happened to the damaged or missing equipment and return said statement to CTAT. Roane State retains the right to hold or freeze student transcripts if property is not returned or repaid.

Software Licenses

CTAT has a limited number of available software licenses. Software keys will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.
