For employees not covered by the Faculty Handbook, Lafayette College owns the copyright on the code for projects developed as part of their job responsibilities. The suggested attribution for such code is as follows (actual attribution may vary based on the preferred style of the project in question).

Copyright 2017 Lafayette College

In the event the developer’s name should be included, the suggested attribution is:

Copyright 2017 Lafayette College (Jack Russell developer)

On work-for-hire projects, the College’s contract with outside vendors should clearly identify the College as the owner.

The College does not own the copyright to projects explicitly not developed as part of their job responsibilities (e.g., a project rejected by the College that employees continued to work on during their own free time).
