Kansas Regents sticking with social media policy



TOPEKA, Kan. - Kansas Board of Regents leaders say they do not plan to back away from the board's social media policy, which has been criticized for allowing administrators to fire or discipline employees for their social media postings.
 
During the board's meeting Wednesday, chairman Fred Logan says he disagrees that the policy restricts staff and faculty from openly expressing their opinions.
 
The policy was adopted last year following controversial tweets by a University of Kansas journalism faculty member after a shooting at the Washington Navy Yard.
 
The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/1j70NH8 ) that the regents are considering making some changes to explicitly say that the board respects First Amendment rights of staff, without dropping provisions that allow for removal if comments are detrimental to the institution.
