Engagement Guidelines

Bowling Green State University encourages open dialogue about the content University-affiliated accounts share but we do reserve the right to moderate discussion and to remove posts that contain the following:

  • Profane or obscene content
  • Off-topic content;
  • Content that promotes, fosters or perpetuates discrimination against protected classes;
  • Sexual harassment content;
  • Conduct or encouragement of illegal activity;
  • Spam or comments that include links to external online sites;
  • Solicitations of commerce or advertisements including promotion or endorsement;
  • Promotions of particular services, products or political candidates or organizations;
  • Content that violates the terms of use or community guidelines of the social media platform; or
  • Information that may tend to compromise the safety or security of the public or public systems

Violators of this policy may have their comments removed from the University's social media platforms. Continued or egregious violations of this policy may prompt the University to further restrict an individual's commenting on University social media platforms. In certain situations, the poster, as well as the content, may be reported to authorities, depending on the nature of the content.

Posts that refer to specific individuals or offices within the BGSU community as part of the complaint, concern or compliment will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

Users who have concerns about specific conduct can contact bgsusocial@bgsu.edu to report them.

Bowling Green State University is not responsible for the content posted by participants on any of its pages, nor does its existence constitute endorsement of the content by the University.

Participants understand that they are ultimately responsible for the content they post, and as such, understand legal issues may arise from the content they post, and that Bowling Green State University is not responsible for those outcomes.
