Overview: Social Media and Existing University Policy
The Social Media Guidelines at Mercer University are designed to be a seamless integration with existing University policies that help govern campus life at Mercer. With 12 schools and colleges on major campuses in Macon, Atlanta and Savannah and at three regional academic centers across the state, Mercer University has multiple policy handbooks that directly relate to the unique environments in which they exist. The Social Media Guidelines provide guidance for using different social media platforms within the context of these policies established by the University to govern student and staff (non-faculty) behavior. With regard to University faculty, and in keeping with the principle of academic freedom, the Social Media Guidelines are consistent with the Faculty Handbook.
