KS Group to Write Regents' Social Media Policy


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A group charged with recommending changes to the Kansas Board of Regents' new social media policy will compose its own social media proposal.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports Kevin Johnson, general counsel at Emporia State University and co-chair of the social media working group, says the group should ignore the current policy and recommend one instead. The working group hopes to have a preliminary policy by March 12 and then accept public comment on it.

The regents last month adopted a policy allowing universities to fire faculty and staff for social media posting that conflicted with the best interests of the school. The new policy followed public uproar last year over an anti-NRA tweet from a KU journalism professor.

Critics say the new policy is vague and restrictive.
