The Universities at Shady Grove (USG) is committed to creating and maintaining an environment in which all persons that participate in USG programs and activities, perform work, or provide services can learn and work together in a safe and secure environment. To that end, USG with the support of their nine institution partners has implemented a USG Logon ID policy which requires all students’, faculty and staff to authenticate to the various technological services provided at our campus. USG Logon IDs serve as a way to authenticate students, faculty, and staff safeguarding against inappropriate usage of campus technology.
