New Media Arts Equipment Policy
Equipment usage in the New Media Arts Program is limited to educational purposes serving the New Media Arts students at the Institute of American Indian Arts. Therefore the following uses and restrictions will apply. All equipment, including computers, printers, cameras, light kits, sound kits, etc. is limited to:
- Students enrolled in New Media Arts classes that require use of the equipment as part of fulfilling course requirements. If this equipment is to be taken off campus for any reason, this must be indicated when equipment is checked out.
- Fulltime and part-time faculty who may check out equipment for use during their classes for instructional use. If this equipment is to be taken off campus for a field-based course experience, this must be indicated when equipment is checked out.
- New Media Arts majors enrolled in classes required for graduation that may be offered by other departments, such as Digital Photography offered by the Studio Arts Department, may check out New Media Arts equipment as needed to fulfill course requirements.
- Professional media artists working with IAIA on special projects or programs that provide direct service to our students through internships or by other means. Professional media artists’ use of equipment must not conflict with instructional purposes as classroom needs will always take precedence. Requests by professional media artists affiliated with IAIA and serving IAIA students must be approved by the Department Chair and the Academic Dean. In each circumstance, the President must be consulted.
NOTE: Equipment may be available for a fee for reasons other than those listed above. Please consult the New Media Arts department chair or the Academic Dean.
