Social Media Community Guidelines

As social media continues to expand in relevant ways to reach and interact with prospective students, current students, alumni and parents, the St. John’s University Digital Team maintains a growing presence on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube.

The University approves these team members to create and maintain all @StJohnsU and @StJohnsAlumni affiliated social networking pages. Team members who are designated to perform these functions may be required to do so as a condition of employment and supervision of such sites resides with the appropriate office.

The University’s Mission statement is the marker by which the ethical behavior of its community members should be measured and guided. It is our duty to ensure that all online communities maintain an engaging, informative, and respectful presence. As such, all social media networks are being actively monitored and team members may perform activities necessary to ensure the safety of our community members. The University reserves the right to access, review, respond to and/or remove any messages that are offensive, profanity-laced, deceptive, or threatening in nature.

  • Bullying of any kind is prohibited.
  • Self-promotion, spam, and irrelevant links will be prohibited.
  • Degrading comments about topics such as race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender, or identity will not be tolerated.
