Kansas Board of Regents Adopts a New Social Media Policy for University Employees

Follow LawandSocialMedia on WordPress.com

The Kansas Board of Regents recently adopted a new social media policy for university employees in the state of Kansas.  According to the policy, university employees may be terminated for “improper use” (a very broad and open-ended phrase) of social media.  This policy was apparently in response to a tweet sent by one University of Kansas journalism professor who was subsequently suspended but not terminated for his use of social media.  In response to the Washington Navy Yard shooting earlier this year, the professor tweeted the following: “The blood is on the hands of the #NRA. Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters.  Shame on you.  May God damn you.”
