Social Media Policies for Official University Pages

Departments or university units with social media pages are required to notify the campus Social Media Team and the Director of University Marketing and Branding to register their pages and provide names and contact information for individuals who are responsible for maintaining the social media accounts. The goal is to provide coordination and assistance to all Northwestern State official social media areas, and to avoid duplication and confusion regarding certain social media services which operate with a single master account.

Social Media Guidelines for Faculty & Staff

Northwestern State encourages its faculty, staff and students to engage in a robust use of social media to forward conversations and knowledge. At the same time, it is important to remember there are certain limits to privileged, confidential, or protected information that must be observed.
