Authorized Social Media:
"Non-Affiliated sites" are outside the scope of this policy. However, Non-Affiliated sites are not entitled to any of the privileges of either Affiliated or Academic sites. The University will take any steps it deems appropriate to protect its interests anywhere it is mentioned or represented.
Student groups may submit their social media sites to be considered for affiliated status, but are not required to do so. To receive affiliated status, the student group's site must meet all of the conditions identified in this policy. Student Group sites not submitted for Affiliated status will be considered Non-Affiliated.
Behavior of all VCSU students and employees on any social media site must be consistent with VCSU's Mission, Vision, and Values, and will be subject to all other VCSU policies, in particular, Section 603 [Non-Discrimination]. The University will not tolerate any form of abuse, profanity, or breech of privacy.
This policy will be enforced by the Director of Marketing and the IT staff responsible for managing University web site resources.
