Colorado State University Social Media Policy
Thousands of current and future students, faculty, staff, alumni and donors are
utilizing mediums such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Flickr, YouTube and many others
to stay connected. CSU believes that having a presence in these areas will allow the
University to broadcast information and interact with a broader public in an enriching
way. In order to operate within these mediums effectively, Colorado State has developed
a social media policy to ensure that any and all interactions on behalf of CSU
represent the University’s best interests.
CSU encourages the University community to be actively involved with social media.
These guidelines are broad in nature to accommodate any differences in online venues
while maintaining a universal code of conduct. As the landscape of social media
changes, the policy may need to be adjusted.
The Colorado State University Social Media Policy applies only to social media
accounts created to represent Colorado State University groups, departments, programs,
entities, etc., and does not apply to private individual accounts.
