Statement on Social Media

However, these same new media platforms can be used to inflict harm on individuals or groups. In keeping with the inclusive vision of Saint Mary’s College, and existing social media guidelines, we urge all community members to recognize that uncivil behavior, harassment and/or name calling on SMC webpages or social media platforms is unacceptable, will not be tolerated and can violate college code of conduct and legal guidelines. The College’s core principle of respect for all persons must apply in all environments, including the virtual world of social media.

Adopted February 21, 2014

Revised March 21, 2014
