Social Media Policy
Bronx Community College
Social Media Guidelines
Bronx Community College (“BCC”) welcomes and encourages active participation by students, faculty, staff and visitors on the BCC Facebook page and other BCC-sponsored social media platforms. The Office of Communications and Marketing is responsible for the official oversight of all social media operating officially under the BCC name.
This Fall 2015 semester, in conjunction with the Offices of the President, Information Technology, and Legal Affairs, the Office of Communications and Marketing will be presenting a draft of a comprehensive Social Media Policy for review, discussion and consideration by the College Senate. Such a policy would be intended to respect academic freedom and open expression of all points of view, while protecting BCC’s reputation; safeguarding the privacy and legal rights of students, staff, faculty, alumni and other constituents affiliated with BCC; and upholding general standards of appropriate and professional content that are in keeping with BCC’s mission and values. We hope that you will participate in this process by providing feedback and comments throughout the review and discussion process in the Senate.
Between now and the implementation of any new policy, we wish to remind those who utilize the BCC Facebook page or any other BCC-sponsored social media platforms of the importance of exercising discretion and professionalism in the use of these forums. The following are some things to keep in mind when posting:
