CU Anschutz Guidelines for Moderating Accounts and Content 

The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus social media platforms are intended to provide information about the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. While we follow the university’s longstanding commitment to free speech and encourage you to share comments and interact with us, we will review all content and comments and remove any that contain threats, hate speech, sexually explicit or pornographic material, obscenity, illegal suggestions, unauthorized advertisements/SPAM/solicitation or the exposure of another user’s protected data.

The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus social accounts abide by the specific platforms terms, standards, rules, guidelines or policy and we ask you to do the same. For example, content that might be considered free speech for an individual may still be removed for violating one of the platform’s specific policies.

Additionally, administrators of Facebook Groups – created for student, faculty and staff engagement – will remove a member if the individual is not an admitted or current member of the CU Anschutz community or for any of the reasons cited above.

If you encounter threatening comments on a page/post, please contact the CU Anschutz Office of Communications.

Users are expected to abide by applicable laws, regulations, rules and policies including the university’s Student Code of Conduct, the university's Discrimination and Harassment Policy and other regulations and policies concerning public communications. Comments, images and other content posted to the social accounts do not necessarily represent the opinions of the university. By participating on CU Anschutz social media platforms, you acknowledge this policy and agree to the terms above.

Guidelines apply to all members of the CU Anschutz community that oversee or engage on the behalf of a CU Anschutz-affiliated social media account.
