Regents Approve Social Media Policy

KSAL StaffDecember 19, 2013

A new Kansas Board of Regents policy gives university leaders more authority to remove staff and faculty over comments made on social media.

The regents approved the policies Wednesday, the first of their kind by the organization that governs Kansas’ system of universities, community colleges and technical schools.

The policy was in response to a tweet made this fall by University of Kansas journalism professor David Guth regarding a shooting at the Washington Navy Yard. Guth tweeted comments hostile toward the National Rifle Association and their opposition to gun control.

The policy allows higher education officials to remove staff or faculty who post comments that incite violence or disrupt the learning environment.
