About This Resource

College and university faculty have increasingly found themselves in the center of firestorms due to their use of social media. Controversial faculty behavior on social media can negatively affect their institutions by reducing enrollment and funding from alumni and other donors, and increasing liability exposure. In these circumstances, colleges and universities are placed in the difficult position of protecting a faculty member’s right to free speech—at public institutions—and academic freedom while balancing the right of students and employees to be free from unlawful harassment and discrimination. This article explores actions institutions can take to help manage the risks associated with faculty social media usage.
