Misuse of Texting and Social Media

 

 

Universities and colleges throughout the United States are enforcing provisions that regulate students and their use of social media applications. The policy reasons behind these provisions focus on reducing the instances of harassment and offensive messages that may violate the student code of conduct at a university or college. Students who think they are sending frivolous texts or messages may discover that they are the subject of allegations related to harassment and sexual misconduct.

Many students may not intend to send messages that end up being the subject of an investigation.

Harassment and Misuse of Texting Violations Come With Significant Consequences

  • Expulsion  

  • Suspension 

  • Revocation of scholarships or financial aid  

  • Loss of campus or university housing
