Social Media

DePaul University has created social media standards to provide support to social media managers at DePaul and set clear guidelines for acceptable posts and comments in DePaul social media. The standards also provide a process for addressing disruptive posts by community members and consequences for repeated disruptions. You can review the standards here.

Social media managers at DePaul include the standards in their social media channels and refer to the standards from time to time through a post in their channels. If your organization manages social media channels and does not have a set of standards like DePaul’s, you should consider developing standards, or use DePaul’s standards as your own.

Remember, regardless of the guidelines, student organizations may be subject to discipline for activity on their social media accounts that violates the Code of Student Responsibility or any other university policy.
