Adopted by President’s Cabinet 3/26/19

Prompt, courteous answers to telephone calls and voice mail messages are very important. Telephone manners should always reflect a professional demeanor. College telephone lines must be kept clear for business use. Personal calls during business hours should be limited and, whenever possible, made during the employee's lunch period. Except in the case of an anticipated emergency, personal cell phones should be on mute or vibrate so as not to disturb other or interfere with work. Excessive personal telephone use will result in disciplinary action. Personal long distance calls may not be charged to the college, as this constitutes a misuse of state funds. Other college equipment, such as fax machines and e-mail are also for college business only.
