Professors Seeking Repeal of Kansas State's Social Media Policy

Posted: Updated:

Kansas State faculty members are repealing the state's social media policy.

The Kansas Board of Regents approved a policy last week that allows university officials to fire staff members if they post social media messages that conflicts with the institution's best interests.

The policy was enacted partly in response to an anti-NRA tweet by a K.U. professor after the September navy yard shooting that killed 13 people in Washington.

Staff members don't seem to be in full support of the new policy.

More than 40 professors from Kansas State have signed a letter asking the regents to withdraw the policy.
