Regents to vote on social media policy

A vote on a revised social media policy that would allow university leaders to fire faculty or staff who violate the policy is expected this week.

The Kansas Board of Regents Governance Committee approved the policy Tuesday. Lawrence Journal World reports Regents Chairman, Fred Logan says the committee made some changes to the proposed policy in response to public comment.

The revised policy includes strong support of academic freedom. The Regents developed a social media policy after an anti NRA tweet in September by University of Kansas Professor, David Guth. It will go to the full regents for a vote May 14th.
