UW-River Falls Administrative Policy
At the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, we recognize that social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have become important and influential communication channels for our community. To assist in posting content and managing these sites, the university has developed guidelines for official and personal use of social media. These guidelines apply to university faculty and staff, and can be used in connection with social media accounts associated with schools, colleges, departments, programs and offices.
The UW-River Falls Chancellor issues this policy in accordance with the Administrative Policy process.
The Assistant Chancellor for Business and Finance is responsible for the administration of this policy. Request an exception to this policy by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Failure to adhere to the provisions of this policy may result in appropriate disciplinary action as provided under existing procedures applicable to students, faculty, and staff, and/or civil or criminal prosecution.
Members of the university are responsible for following the approved policy guidelines and communicating with University Communications if any questions or unique situations arise.
Colleges, units and departments are responsible for complying with this policy.
UWRF launched a social media presence in the summer of 2010. University offices, departments and personnel have a high level of interest in establishing their own social media presence, and therefore University Communications created a list of guidelines/policy in order to ensure that a unified, consistent image of UWRF is presented across the social media spectrum. This document also serves to answer questions that may arise and advise on best practices in the area of social media.
