BW Supported Academic Software
Per BW’s “Acceptable Use” policy, it is important to use BW's institutionally-supported software and systems. Faculty, staff, and students who choose to download and use other applications could be at risk for spyware, malware, viruses, or having their personal or intellectual data used by others. Unsupported programs can sometimes pose security threats to the BW network when connected to BW email accounts or other BW systems. The BW HelpDesk can only provide assistance for BW-supported software and systems.
