The following major related categories contain the indicated principal affiliations and are summarized below.  For a complete description, see University Affiliation/Affiliate Policy. 

 

Credentialed Associate:  This supplemental affiliation category consists of affiliates who are entered into NAU computer systems for identification management purposes only.  While their identification on computing systems is necessary to facilitate other types of services from various campus departments, no additional computing services are necessary.  Policy and business rules concerning administration of non-IT services is the purview of the cognizant functional department.  Examples include vendors servicing residence halls, persons receiving NAU ID cards for service purposes other than computing, Recreation Center members who do not fall into the Student, Faculty or Staff categories, etc.

Collaborative Associate: This supplementary affiliation includes community or fraternal types of organizations located outside of the mountain campus and thus away from related infrastructure computing needs.  These organizations have established a partnership with NAU.  This working relationship benefits from their members receiving NAU IT services.  Examples of current Collaborative Association affiliation types include the Arboretum and the Museum of Northern Arizona

Collaborative Campus Associate: This supplementary affiliation is similar to the Collaborative Association.  However, the associated organization is hosted on the NAU mountain campus or another NAU location such as NAU Yuma or other statewide offices, and thus the NAU computing network.  All affiliated organizations located on campus tend to have a closer working relationship with NAU and typically require more extensive IT services. Affiliation Types include US Forest Service and USGS researchers.

Collaborative Student:  This supplementary affiliation category includes various affiliation types supported by ITS.  This affiliation facilitates collaborative academic work with students not included in existing affiliations related to enrollment at NAU.  Examples include Cline Library affiliates, the Park Ranger Program, and the Four Corners Math and Science Program.

Adjunct.  Adjunct contains the single supplementary affiliation, “Adjunct”. Adjunct professors are generally recognized by the department chair and may or may not have an associated salary. Adjunct status requires approval by the Provost’s office.  This affiliation type is assigned by department in order to facilitate administration and assignment of sponsors.

Institution Affiliation.   This major category contains principal affiliations based on employment or student status with the university. The principal affiliations include, “Student”, “Faculty”, “Staff”, and “Instructor”. The default set of IT services includes campus network and appropriate domain access. Employees and students of NAU enjoy certain additional privileges such as site-licensed software, including anti-virus protection (Microsoft software is limited to employees only due to MS contract restrictions), and access to ITS training. Additional services such as PeopleSoft, Advantage and Business Objects access are granted based on need by position and fulfillment of prerequisites such as FERPA training requirements and properly completed authorization forms.

Course Materials Access This category allows for collaboration and other similar uses of the Blackboard Vista course management system without requiring that the users be NAU students, faculty or staff. The default services include an NAU online identification and Blackboard access.
