Social media account administrators should be prepared to make a commitment to their social media.

As agents of the College, social media administrators must comply with all federal, state, and other applicable law, including federal requirements as outlined in Family Educational and Privacy Act (FERPA) and The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA); all applicable College rules and procedures; and all applicable licenses and contracts. Examples include, but are not limited to, laws pertaining to libel, copyright, trademark, child pornography, and hacking; the College’s code of student conduct; the College’s Principles of Intellectual Honesty; the College’s sexual harassment policy; and all applicable software licenses. These policies are found on the U.S. Department of Education, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, and Lafayette College websites.
