Use of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems on University Property Policy

Small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS), also referred to as drones, model airplanes or remote control aircraft, are controlled aircraft without an onboard pilot. In higher education, the uses for sUAS are growing rapidly as technology advances and changes in federal regulations make possible a wide array of applications in research, education, and operations. The sUAS management team oversees the use of sUAS on University property as covered in the sUAS policy. This policy and related procedures are designed to ensure that use of sUAS on campus is conducted in a safe, responsible manner that respects the privacy and security of all members of our community.
