PSU Policies

Social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and other online media are great tools for engagement and two-way communication, but given the nature of this two-way, real-time communication, there is the potential for significant risks associated with inappropriate use. As with any university communications effort, there are a number of existing Portland State University policies that are important for you to be familiar with once you decide to use social media for a college, school, or unit.

Please take time to review and familiarize yourself with the latest versions of the following PSU policies and procedures.
