Social Media Policy
With the constantly changing and expanding world of social media, Belhaven University has set up guidelines which we ask all of our participants to uphold. These guidelines include sites like, but not limited to, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, Picasa, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+ and Blogs.
Posts/comments written on any Belhaven University social media sites need to be relevant to the Belhaven community. The Belhaven social media sites will discuss things directly related to Belhaven University, not personal advertisements, products or causes. Posts that are deemed irrelevant to the site and/or the audience will be removed at the administrator's discretion.
Sexist, racist, offensive, obscene, sexually explicit, derogatory and other discriminatory posts, comments, images or videos will be removed immediately. Users are free to discuss topics pertaining to Belhaven University and disagree with one another, but please be respectful of other people. Also, ensure that proper permissions are obtained prior to posting images or videos of individuals.
For your own safety and security, please refrain from sharing personal contact information (home phone numbers, mailing addresses, personal email addresses, etc.).
Respect the University
Critical, offensive, derogatory and other discriminatory posts, comments, images or videos that attack the university or individual faculty, staff or students will be removed immediately. Critical comments should not be made on a public site – rather, according to the biblical model of one-on-one, face-to-face conversation with those responsible for the area being criticized.
Respect Intellectual Property
It is very important at Belhaven University to respect intellectual property and follow copyright policies. When posting text, images, or video ensure that proper permissions are obtained and that proper credit is given when required.
