Colorado State University Social Media Policy

    Colorado State University Social Media Policy

    An organization can encourage its members to be active on social networking sites and still recognize and manage the many associated risks. These guidelines will help optimize the experience.

    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.
