Deborah A. Gordon: Regents should step back on social media policy

We have a social media policy for Kansas community colleges and universities thrown together under Kansas Board of Regents governance. As a May 14 Eagle editorial noted, the obvious problem with the policy isn’t what it includes from the regents’ social media working group – the cut-and-paste job of language about the First Amendment. It’s what the policy retains – the will to discipline, sanction and terminate with the power to determine which tweets are and are not in the “best interests” of the university vested in the “chief executive officer.”
