Social Community Guidelines

The University of Michigan College of Literature, Science, and the Arts monitors all content posted on its official social media sites. We encourage open discussion about the topics we post, but reserve the right to remove any posts that violate the following Code of Conduct. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Off-topic comments
  • Illegal activities
  • Racial slurs
  • Threats of violence
  • Advertising
  • Offensive or inappropriate language
  • Pornographic material
  • Actual or attempted defamation

In certain situations, the poster, as well as the content, may be reported to authorities, depending on the nature of the content.

Posts that refer to specific individuals or offices within the LSA community as part of a complaint, concern, or compliment will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Depending on the circumstances, at the discretion of page administrators, the post or comment may be removed.

The same content may be posted up to three times in a calendar month, whether by an individual or on behalf of an outside organization, or by multiple individuals. Posts beyond this restriction will be considered spam and will be flagged for removal.

Page administrators may review comments and posts on the page to address any issues or concerns. Users who have concerns about specific conduct can contact lsa-socialmedia@umich.edu to report them.

The University of Michigan College of LSA is not responsible for the content posted by participants on any of its pages, nor does its existence constitute endorsement of the content by UMLSA.

Participants understand that they are ultimately responsible for the content they post, and as such, understand legal issues may arise from the content they post, and that the University of Michigan College of LSA is not responsible for those outcomes.

USER TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Participants on social media accounts managed by LSA are permitted to share, post, comment, like, flag, tag, rate, upload videos and images, and converse with other participants and with content posted on the respective page, consistent with the above terms and conditions.
