Code of Conduct

1. Introduction

SSE is guided by four principles: to make opportunity accessible, inspire change, always adapt and deliver impact. This means, we see SSE as a movement. A school that is committed to create a bigger common stage for our diverse community of entrepreneurship to thrive.

Engaging with SSE, means you are required to agree and comply with the following Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct (hereafter ‘code’) has been formulated to provide a clear statement of SSE’s expectations of individual behaviour.

Whether you are actively engaging within the broader SSE community at the SSE campus (meaning Building J, 651-731 Harris Street, Ultimo NSW 2007) or participating in our learning activities off campus, SSE will enforce the code throughout its activities across NSW and expects cooperation from all, to ensure a safe, ethical and healthy work and learning environment for everybody.

The professional and dedicated SSE team highly values these relationships and is driven to provide anyone engaging with SSE, a safe and ethical healthy environment. Everyone is expected to welcome and treat one another with respect, dignity and courtesy regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion.

People are expected to empower each other by developing attributes and enhancing skills – making opportunity accessible for all to participate and enjoy any SSE activity.

We work to the principle of transparency and sharing information. Freedom of expression shall be respected and conflicts are expected to be resolved fairly, honestly and calmly while maintaining a cooperative and collaborative approach to inter-personal relationships.

This Code must be read in conjunction with the relevant state and federal law and TAFE NSW statutes, regulations and policies. Anyone violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the activity, and refused entry to further activities at the discretion of SSE.

8         AARNet Eduroam

Eduroam is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.  It enables students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain internet connectivity across the SSE campus and when visiting other participating institutions by logging onto their device.

The use of eduroam is governed by the Australian eduroam Policy and the Global eduroam Policy as detailed in the SSE eduroam Policy. All users must comply with these policies as well as this policy, when using this service.

Eduroam is only available to users over 18 years of age or those users that have acquired parental consent to use the unrestricted internet access.

It is the responsibility of a student’s home institution to provide support whilst accessing Eduroam at another participating institution like SSE.

 Eduroam Policy 

1 Policy Statement 

This Policy sets out the requirements for the use of the secure, worldwide roaming access service ‘eduroam’ provided by AARNet for Sydney School of Entrepreneurship (SSE) campus and other locations in ways that uphold our guiding principles: 

• Make opportunity accessible; 

• inspire change; 

• always adapt; and 

• deliver impact. 

2 Scope 

The policy applies to all SSE employees, Interns, Board and Committee members, contractors and consultants (hereafter referred to as a SSE Team Member). All policies, procedures and guidelines must comply with this framework. 

3 Definitions 

eduroam means the ‘education roaming’ service. eduroam is a global service, enabling staff and students of educational, research and related institutions to visit another eduroam participating institution and connect to the visited institution’s wireless network automatically. 

AARNet means the ‘Australian Academic and Research Network’. AARNet is the eduroam AU national roaming operator (NRO) hosting the national eduroam infrastructure and enabling Australia’s research and education institutions to participate in eduroam nationally and globally. 

SSE means Sydney School of Entrepreneurship, a partnership between the 11 NSW based universities and TAFE NSW. 

SSE campus means building J, 651-731 Harris Street, Ultimo NSW 2007, Australia. 

User(s) means anyone using eduroam, which is available to general staff academics, researchers and students from eduroam participating educational, research and related institutions globally. 

Institution means any research or education institutions providing eduroam. Institutions also include other universities, research organizations, schools, vocational training providers, galleries, libraries, archives and museums. 

Home institution means the institution where staff, academics, researchers or students are enrolled. 

4 Roles and Responsibilities 

4.1 Chief Executive Officer (CEO) 

The SSE Chief Executive Officer (CEO) has ultimate responsibility and accountability for the access to and use of eduroam at SSE. 

4.2 Management 

Directors and decision makers at all levels in SSE are accountable for ensuring that all SSE Team Members only access eduroam in accordance with this policy. 

4.3 Ongoing Administration 

All employees are accountable for compliance with eduroam policies and procedures in their day to day roles. 

5 Eduroam Policy 

Trust in eduroam authentication is underpinned by use of a secure technical infrastructure, protocol and eduroam policies to which all eduroam participants are required to comply – ensuring that user credentials are kept secret between users and their home institution. By participating in eduroam AU, SSE agrees to conform to the Global eduroam Policy and the eduroam AU policy, maintained by AARNet as the NRO. 

5.1 Using eduroam at SSE 

User should configure eduroam authentication locally, at the home institution, before traveling to SSE campus by using the authentication parameters provided by the home institution local eduroam webpage. Other eduroam participating institutions similarly grant network access to visiting users from SSE. 

SSE provides full outbound access with public IP addresses. Inbound access is restricted. Services running on user’s devices may not be accessible externally while connected to SSE network. 

5.2 User’s responsibility in using eduroam 

The eduroam AU policy states that users must conform to their home institution’s network Acceptable Use Policy (AUP). 

As the community of users of eduroam consists of users from institutions engaged in research and/or education, an assumption underpinning eduroam trust is that those institutions will have equivalent network acceptable use policies, including restrictions on activities which may be performed on the network. 

SSE reserves the right to monitor use of its eduroam network. If SSE’s technology usage policy is contravened by the user, SSE reserves the right to prevent access and report the action to the user’s home institution. The user’s home institution is expected to respond as if the incident occurred on the home institution’s own network. 

5.3 User’s privacy 

When using eduroam, the eduroam protocol prevents institutional password from being revealed to any eduroam server other than the home institution’s eduroam server. The login password is protected and remains private between user and the home institution. 

The username is visible to SSE institutional RADIUS server and national and global eduroam infrastructure servers involved in routing authentication request from the user’s device to the home institution and may be included in logs. Such logs are required to be protected by the institution running the RADIUS server. 

5.4 Eduroam trust model 

Eduroam trust model between institutions remotely authenticating users and other institutions providing network access via eduroam, is supported by the ability to track a practical network access event to an authentication of the user by their home institution. Home institutions are expected to take appropriate action on behalf of visited institutions in case a user does not comply with the visited institution’s network AUP. 

In order to provide this traceability, remote authentication and network access transactions via eduroam are logged by SSE. Usage logs are used for the purpose of service trouble-shooting and user support as referred in eduroam AU Policy and retained for a period of six months. Access to usage logs is restricted to authorised personnel and authorities as required by the law.
