New & Revised Policies

University Policy 317, Social Medial Policy

  September 28, 2020

Status: Newly Approved

The new University Policy 317, Social Media Policy, has been established to minimize risk, streamline brand identity and account management, and better equip the UNC Charlotte social media network for the growing number of issues management that occur on University-affiliated social media channels. The Policy is tailored for UNC Charlotte's social media landscape, stemming from an audit of our current social media network of over 150 accounts, evaluation of past University-wide response efforts, and recognition of the increased need for ease of expectation setting and management standards.

  August 13, 2020

Status: Revised

The Code of Student Academic Integrity has been revised to clarify that the Director of Student Conduct & Academic Integrity can alter the procedures as necessary "to protect the University community, property, or resources"; unauthorized collaboration may be with any other individual, and not only with another Student; once a student receives notice of an alleged violation, the case may continue even if the student withdraws; and the maximum penalty under an Informal Resolution is the grade for the course, not the grade for an assignment. The revisions also add “Academic Integrity Probation” as a new sanction option to allow for a sanction outside of grade penalties that can hold students accountable for a period of time to prevent future Academic Integrity violations.
