Social Media and Web Moderation Policy
Mercyhurst University hosts and moderates social media accounts on a variety of platforms and our website. Social media provides a tool for informing and engaging current and future students, alumni, employees, and friends of the university. We welcome comments on our social media posts so long as comments are constructive and consistent with the university’s tradition of respectful dialogue. We reserve the right to remove any post or comment, particularly posts that promote demonstrably false information, attempt to circumvent proper channels for resolution of university business, violate the inherent privacy rights of others, use copyrighted material without a fair use exemption, or speculate on pending litigation to which the university or its affiliates are a party. For more information about our community standards and values, consult the Mission Statement, the Student Code of Conduct, and the IT Code of Conduct.
